Sweet Chilli Chicken

A great marinated chicken for the BBQ. This is enough for about 4 people.

Prepare the marinate with –

  • A fresh chilli chopped
  • 2 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 4 tbsp runny honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp lime juice

We prepared the marinate to day before and marinated the chicken for a couple of hours before cooking. You can either use boneless chicken thighs or with the bone but then scissoring the meat up to the bone.

Peter & Alison

The social theme continues as Peter and Alison are coming to lunch with Alison’s parents.

Another mad morning of making salads, dressings and marinating chicken for the BBQ. Great marinate by the way.

Ginger Soy chicken

Can use chicken breasts slashed or chicken legs/thighs scissored. A great way to do it is putting everything in a ziplock bag with the meat and giving it all a good massage. Then place in the fridge for up to 2 hours before cooking.

  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp sesame oil (toasted if you have it)
  • 1 tbsp dry sherry or port
  • 8 tbsp soy sauce

This time lunch was prepared to be had on the side terrace as access is easier and it is not so far to fall off.

Another great day with good company only slightly marred when a big gust of wind snapped the parasol. Mendable I think, just add it to the list.

Another evening where we did not need to eat. Instead we settled by the fire and watched and old Clint Eastwood film with an oragutan.
