Directions: Spicy Grilled Chicken Recipe

step 1

  • STEP 1.Finely chop fresh cilantro, also get a few mint leaves and chop them too, this is going to add a soft minty taste. Peel, smash, and finely chop fresh garlic.

step 2

  • STEP 2.Here is the secret ingredient use preserved lemons. We are going to use ½ a lemon. Unleash the pulp, keep for later use in a tagine for example – then finely slice and chop the skin. That’s what is going to add a delicious citrusy flavor to our marinade.

Here we have ground ginger, ground turmeric, black pepper, and fennel seeds, mix them well. Add a little bit of water to dilute and balance the marinade.

step 5

  • STEP 5.Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight if you want is the best option

step 6
