Mojito chicken marinade for BBQ season


We had lots of fun at our Cuban Supper pop-up night in West Wickham last Friday, and lots of our guests on the evening asked us to share our recipe for the Mojito marinated chicken. So, here you go :) For best results, marinate the chicken over night in two thirds of the marinade, and then reserve the rest in a clean jar stored in the fridge to give the chicken skin a brush just before serving.

2 teaspoons cumin powder

3 garlic cloves (minced)

1 teaspoon mild chilli powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

Juice of 1 lemon

Juice & finely grated zest of 2 limes

2 tablespoons fresh mint (finely chopped)

- Makes enough marinade to coat 4 chicken thighs -

Method:

1. Add all of the ingredients in to a clean jam jar, give a good shake and then it's ready to use!
