I created this dish when we had friends over for dinner and i wanted to have a tasty yet simple meal. The chicken has this amazing spice rubbed all over it making it mouthwateringly good (if that's a word)! The sauce and syrup with which you baste the chicken at the end crates this wonderful sticky bbq sauce, which i heaven! I usually would serve this with a potato salad on a warm night, but it would go just as well with mash on a cold winter night too.
8 Chicken thighs
2 Tablespoons Ground Coriander
2 Tablespoons Paprika
2 Tablespoons Cumin
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Cracked Pepper
1 Tablespoon Salt
4 Tablespoons Tomato Ketchup (you can use sauce if you have it)
5 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
Juice of 1 Lemon
Preheat the grill on your BBQ or use a griddle frying pan. Combine the spice rub ingredients together mixing well. Coat the thighs in the spice mixture, pressing it to make sure it sticks. then arrange them skin side down on the grill. Cook for around 30mins or until cooked.
To make the bbq sauce mix all the sauce ingredients together and mix well. Baste the chicken with the sauce in the last 10min of cooking. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.
Tip - Great served with my potato salad (click here for recipe)
