A new take on BBQ Chicken that can be enjoyed all year round! Grilled Chicken with Spiced Strawberry & Lime cider drizzle sauce.
• First make the drizzle sauce by combining all of the ingredients in a saucepan and mixing together thoroughly.
• Bring to the boil and simmer vigorously for 20 minutes stirring occasionally until the sauce has reduced. The mixture should cover the back of a spoon without completely running off.
• Allow to cool before pouring into a sauce bottle or jar.
For the chicken:
• Combine all of the dry ingredients to make a barbecue rub.
• Apply the rub to the chicken liberally using a little oil to ensure that it sticks.
On the BBQ:
• Set up your BBQ so that it has good quality charcoal on one side and nothing on the other. This provides you with the option to move your food over to the cool side and cook with the lid on. Cooking with the lid on turns your BBQ into an outdoor oven, ideal for more gradual cooking.
• Place your chicken onto the hot side of the BBQ first to get a nice char and colour. If necessary move to the cooler side afterwards to finish cooking. If you do have a temperature gauge on the lid you should aim for around 180c.
• Depending on the heat and size, your chicken thighs should take approximately 15-20 minutes to cook through. If you have an instant read thermometer your chicken should reach the minimum internal temperature of 74c.
In the oven:
• Preheat your oven to 180c. Place the chicken thighs onto a baking tray and cook for 20-30 minutes or until cooked through. If you do have an instant read thermometer the chicken should reach the minimum internal temperature of 74c.
• Serve the chicken drizzled with your pre-prepared Spiced Strawberry & Lime Cider Sauce. Serve with sides of your choice.

Note: Check that the meat has reached a safe internal temperature using an instant read thermometer. This is particularly important on the BBQ where food can char quickly on the outside. We would recommend buying one of these for your kitchen so that you can cook food safely without overcooking. We have provided estimates for cooking time if you don’t have one.
