About 2 kg of chicken pieces/drums /nibbles or use a whole split chicken . This is versatile at its best . It’s either dinner or party nibbles or a shared lunch . Make it work for you !

Rule for the chicken is to score the skin and flesh to let the marinade get in!


Whisk the oil, garlic, zest, juice ,mixed herbs and yogurt ,salt and pepper in a bowl together . Add your chicken. You can do this many ways , either a container with a good sealed lid or shove in a sealable bag . If using the bag squeeze the air out as much as possible. Marinate overnight if possible but at least an hour or two. The longer the better .

Cook the chicken how you prefer, bake, grill, BBQ

Serve with a choice of sauces
