What you'll need
  • 8 chicken thighs, skin on
  • 2 lemons, zest and juice (or 4 tbsp of bottled lemon juice)
  • 3 crushed garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coriander, chopped
  • 1 tbsp piri-piri sauce
  • 1 tbsp paprika
Step 1.

Place all the ingredients in a non-metallic container, mix together and cover. Put this in the fridge for at least 2 hours but leaving the chicken to chill and marinate overnight will give it the most flavour.

Step 2.

Before grilling, bring the mixture to room temperature.

Step 3.

Make 2 skewers, with 4 thighs on each. Cook on a very hot barbecue or hob for 5 minutes. Turn the skewers and grill the other side for 5 minutes. If they need some more time, continue to cook on a medium heat, until juices run clear.
