“This is a great spicy marinade recipe, a traditional African dish, great for BBQ. Nice with salad and fries, but I like adding it to a pita with salad and garlic Greek yogurt (3/4 cup Greek yogurt and 3 cloves of crushed garlic with finely chopped chives). Don’t go on a date though, gives you wicked garlic breath!”
1/4 cup paprika
2 tablespoons hot chili powder
1 cup fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 bone-in chicken breast halves
In a large bowl, stir together the paprika, chili powder, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and salt. Rub chicken with the mixture, place in a dish, and marinate for 3 hours.
Preheat a grill for medium heat.
Place chicken onto the grill and discard the marinade. Cook for about 30 minutes, turning occasionally, until the skin is slightly charred and juices run clear.
