This is a lovely BBQ chicken recipe. The original recipe uses 10 chicken wings but here I used 3 pieces chicken whole legs, roasted to serve with mashed potatoes and mayo flavoured salad.
These can be served as snack with home-made garlic chilli sauce. This recipe is a keeper and I will definitely use it for BBQ chicken wings next time for family and friends' gatherings.  The marinade is definitely suitable for barbecue.

The chicken meat is succulent, so so tasty and fragrant. Yummylicious!

Hi Karen, I was surprised that the marinade could be so tasty and delicious for roasting chicken. I wouldn't mind using it with chicken wings or a whole chicken. It is very nice.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, normally I like to serve baked chicken with lots of vegetables or salad. This combination is a hit with my family.

Kimmy said...

Hi Holy Food, this one is yummy. Others that I have prepared are also good and worth preparing for your loved ones. Hassle free yet awesome.

Hi Kit, you must try this and other roast chicken that I have tried... They were so good, we enjoyed our meals with them. I have relaxing times watching TV while the chicken is baking in the oven...hehehe!

Kimmy, this I like very, very much! It's a well balanced meal to pair the chicken with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. So ho chiak!!

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, agree this is ho chiak and a healthier version. These days I used steaming method to cook the potatoes instead of boiling, then I didn't have to stir t at all. You must try..
