Ingredients

8 chicken thighs, bone-in, with skin 1.4 kg
1 tsp peppercorns, coarsely ground 3 g
3/4 tsp caraway seeds, coarsely ground 2 g
2 tbsp gingerroot, finely chopped 26 g
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp sugar 12 g
2 tsp paprika 6 g
3 tbsp canola oil 45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
1 limes, quartered 70 g

Before you start

The chicken must be marinated at least 6 hours before cooking. The chicken may be cooked, using either an outdoor grill or by broiling it in the oven.

Method

  1. Score the chicken pieces deeply using a knife to allow the marinate to penetrate, then arrange the pieces in a shallow bowl.
  2. Grind the peppercorns and caraway seeds using a mortar and pestle or using a pepper mill if available. Otherwise, place the spices in a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin. Finely chop the ginger and garlic, then add them to the mixture. Add the sugar, paprika, and oil, then grind into a paste.
  3. Spread the mixture over the chicken pieces, making sure to coat them well. Cover the bowl with a plate and let them marinate in the refrigerator at least 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Cook the chicken on a medium grill for about 20-25 min, basting with the marinade and turning the pieces once. Alternatively, put the chicken on the rack of a broiler pan, then roast it in the oven under a preheated broiler 7-10 cm from the heat.
  5. Season with a little salt, then serve with lime wedges on the side.

It was very good, tasty and easy to make. My 4 year old enjoyed it but he didn??t like the peppercorns. I didn??t crush the peppercorns enough with the rolling pin. Will make it again.
