Directions

  1. Wash the chicken, pat dry on kitchen towels and using a sharp knife make two diagonal cuts on each piece for better absorption of flavours.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the rub and pour over the chicken. Make sure it coats all the pieces. Set aside in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  3. Heat the oven broiler to 180 degrees, and grill the chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil placed on the topmost shelf. After 15 minutes turn the pieces to cook the other side. Take care not to leave the chicken under the hot grill after it is cooked; they will dry up. Serve chicken hot with a fresh green salad.
