Grilled Mustard Chicken

29 Jul

Chicken pieces are first marinaded in a spicy, pungent mixture of garlic, mustard, chilli and turmeric then cooked in the oven, grill or barbecue. This dish works equally well with Indian food or served with a simple salad or rice and a vegetable on the side.
Serves 6 Marinade overnight cook 45min

  • 1 chicken or 6 chicken pieces
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • 3-6 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp hot chill, roughly ground (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp mustard oil

Joint the chicken into 6 pieces, score the pieces with a knife right down to the bone so that the spices will go right through the chicken. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and put the chicken in with the spices. Rub the chicken pieces well to make sure the spices get into all the creases cover and put in the fridge to marinade for at least 24 hours.
