SPICY CITRUS CHICKEN
1 medium orange
1 large lemon
16 chicken drummettes
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup (125ml) marmalade (you can use any
Kind of your favorites, but no citrus jam)
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1 medium size hot red chilli, very fine chopped
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
How to do
Peel rind from orange and lemon, best using a
Vegetable peeler. Slice rind into thin stripes.
Place rind into a pan of boiling water, simmer,
Uncovered for about 8 minutes, or until soft; drain.
Squeeze juice from orange, reserve 1/4 cup (60ml)
Squeeze juice from lemon, reserve 1/4 cup (60ml)
Combine chicken with rind, reserved juices and
Remaining ingredients in bowl, mix well, cover
And refrigerate 3-4 hours or over night.
Drain chicken, reserve marinade.
Place chicken on wire rack over baking dish,
Or similar in BBQ.
Bake uncovered, in moderate heat for about
45 minutes, or until chicken is tender,
Brushing with reserved marinade throughout cooking.
Serve hot with some garlic bread and fresh
Green salad. For salad dressing just use olive
Oil and a mix of a bit mustard and lemon juice,
To accomplish the chicken taste.
For marinating I always use a strong plastic bag:
Fits everywhere in the fridge and is easy to
Turn around from time to time. And no dish washing !
If you don't like it to spicy, just leave the chilli
Or/and 1/2 of the cracked pepper.
The chicken drum sticks use with skin on or off,
Whatever you like best.
