This is a brilliant marinade for chicken and we hope it inspires you to get the barbecue fired up. You will need a hood on your barbecue or be able to improvise a lid to cook these chicken pieces. The marinade is a simple combination of lime juice , fresh chilli and Spanish paprika, which adds a wonderful flavour and colour to the meat. The mango salsa adds a sweet and lively reminder that spring is here!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1.6 whole chicken, cut Into 8 pieces
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
125ml lime juice, (about 3 limes)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
1 teaspoon caster sugar

Mango salsa

Quantity Ingredient
1 ripe mango
1 teaspoon caster sugar
1 lime juice
2 teaspoons fish sauce
2 small red chillies, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Place the chicken pieces on a flat dish. Mix the remaining ingredients together to create a marinade, then brush all over the chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 2–3 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. To prepare the mango salsa, peel the mango, then remove the flesh from the stone and dice finely. Put in a bowl. Make a dressing by stirring the sugar with the lime juice and fish sauce until it dissolves. Combine with the diced mango, then toss through the chilli and coriander, mixing thoroughly. Season with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Preheat the barbecue to medium. Place the chicken pieces on the heated, oiled barbecue plate and close the hood or cover the meat with a lid. Cook the chicken for 15 minutes, rotating regularly. Turn the chicken over and cover again. Cook for a further 15 minutes, rotating the chicken 2–3 times. Remove the lid, baste well and continue cooking, uncovered, for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Check the chicken is cooked down to the bone by inserting a knife into the thickest part of the thigh. The chicken is cooked when the juices run clear, with no trace of pink.
  5. To serve, arrange the chicken pieces on a platter and spoon the mango salsa over the top.
