Accessories you need



I usually only use a sprinkle of cayenne (as cayenne papper is very spicy) and the minimum amount of chilli flakes as I'm not a huge fan of spicy food. 

This chicken tastes great if you finish it off on the BBQ to get a little char-grilled action. 

You can make this by cutting up a whole chicken into 8 pieces as well.

I have made this marinade and put on chicken and cooked in oven straight away and used the marinade in the pan as a sauce and it tasted great.

    Tried this tonight. It was a very thin, runny sauce but still quite tasty. It does need to be thicker though. Will try this again though, yum.

    This is so tasty!  I made it and marinated T-Bone steaks to grill on the BBQ.  I also tossed some jacket potatoes in the marinade then cooked them in foil on the BBQ.  It all came out tasting super yum tmrc_emoticons.)
