Be a kid or a teenage or an adult or an oldie, chicken lovers trend all over the world at all times! One meat that is a favourite of all beyond belief! When cooked, it can be presented in many guises. Sauté it, fry it, toss it, bake it, steam it – eat it the way you want to. Whatever its form may be upon being cooked, its flavour may change but its flesh remains high in protein, low in fat and can be digested easily.
Clean and cut the chicken into four pieces (two leg part + two breast part). For the marinade mix together garlic paste, salt, red chilli flakes, red chilli powder, chilli sauce, tomato ketchup, soy sauce and barbecue sauce. Marinate the chicken pieces in this mixture for an hour.
Place a thick barbecue iron griddle on live charcoals and smear it with three tablespoons oil. When the griddle is hot enough place the marinated chicken on it and baste with the remaining marination.
Cook till done (fifteen to twenty minutes) and golden brown in colour, basting with oil from time to time. When one side is cooked turn over and cook the other side similarly.
(You can also skewer the pieces and grill, basting with butter from time to time, till golden brown). Serve hot with onion rings, capsicum and carrot slices.
