South-East Asian BBQ Chicken

Charcoal grilled chicken can be found from street vendors all over South-east Asia. I’d thought I’d try making some myself.

  1. 2.5 kg of chicken pieces (e.g. chicken legs, drumsticks, etc)
For marinade
  1. 1 head of garlic, peeled and chopped
  2. 2 tablespoons of ground turmeric
  3. 1 tablespoon of ground coriander
  4. 2 teaspoons of black pepper
  5. 2 teaspoons of sugar
  6. 2 teaspoons of salt
  7. 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  1. Mix marinade ingredients together.
  2. Pour over chicken pieces. Make sure chicken is entirely covered.
  3. Leave covered for at least 10 minutes. Overnight in fridge is better.
  4. Cook on the BBQ. With my Weber kettle BBQ this means 40-50 minutes on indirect heat.
  1. If you don't have a BBQ then just roast in the oven for 40 minutes at 220° C
