Grilled Chicken

Description

A healthy grilled chicken with the delicate flavours of Basil and Garlic. We cook this grilled chicken on the Webber BBQ, making it a very quick and easy meal without having to light the charcoal used for the traditional Persian BBQ.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg Chicken thigh fillet
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp salt

Methods/steps

  1. In the bowl of a food processor place all the ingredients except the chicken. Process until well combined
  2. To prepare the chicken fillets, slice through the thick sections and score the surface to enable the marinade to penetrate the flesh.
  3. Preheat the grill BBQ to a high heat.
  4. Turn down the heat and place the chicken fillets on the hot grill. Close the lid of the BBQ for about 5 minutes.
  5. Turn the chicken and cook for a further 5 – 10 minutes until cooked to you liking.
  6. Serve with flat bread and salad.

Additional Tips

For interesting alternative, try this with different herbs – sabzi – like coriander with a touch of chilli, or garlic chives – tare.
