Ready to marinate

Lime, chili and salt go so well together that I now have a hankering for a Mexican drink!

  1. Mix the lime juice, chili, salt, sugar and oil together in a bowl
  2. Cut some deep slashes into the flesh so the marinade can 'work' on the meat
  3. Marinate the chicken in a refrigerator for 2 hours or more, turning a few times
  4. Barbecue the chicken for about 15 minutes on a well oiled grill, turning often to prevent burning
  5. Check the chicken is properly cooked before serving

Serving suggestions

Serve with a green salad, jacket potatoes, sour cream and Pickled jalapeños


You could make this with chicken thighs or drumsticks. Larger pieces will take a little longer to cook. Check the juices run clear when the thickest part is pierced with a fork.

These can also be cooked on an oven tray with a rack at 180° C [350° F - Gas 4 - Moderate/Medium]. Allow 40 minutes for small pieces like wings. 50 minutes for larger pieces like thighs and drumsticks. Check juices run clear and leave to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Try this marinade with lamb tenderloin fillets or king prawns
