Cooking Instructions

  1. In a dry pan, on a low heat, toast the allspice, peppercorns, cinnamon shards and coriander seeds, shaking often for a few minutes.
  2. Grind spices in a pestle & mortar until a powder.
  3. Bltiz spices and remaining marinade ingredients until a smooth paste.
  4. Put chicken pieces in a large roasting dish, cover with the Marinade and massage into chicken, coat-ing thoroughly.
  5. Cover with cling film and marinate overnight in fridge.
  6. Heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 and cook chicken for 45 minutes, until tender. To BBQ chicken, add some wood chips to the coals (this will give a more authentic flavour). Brown the chick-en pieces over the hottest part of the barbecue, then move chicken to the edge of the grill, to a lower heat.
  7. Close lid and cook for 30-40 minutes, turning occasionally, until the juices run clear and the chicken is cooked through.
