BBQ Chicken in the oven

>> Sep 8, 2009

Here’s a delicious and simple chicken recipe. It’s BBQ chicken, cook in the oven and you can have it even on rainy days. Kids like this recipe, Max and my nieces & nephews love them. It’s finger-licking good.

4 chicken thighs, deboned and cut into 2 pcs
8 pips of garlic
2cm ginger
2 tbsp of light soy sauce
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tsp of turmeric powder
1 tbsp of curry powder
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tbsp of vegetable oil
Baking tray
Wire tray
Large piece of aluminium foil

  1. Wash and clean chicken thighs, deboned but skin left on, cut into 2 pieces.
  2. Chopped garlic and ginger till very fine or you can use a blender or a mortar-n-pestle to crush-grind. Put in a medium –size bowl.
  3. Stir in soy sauce, turmeric powder, curry powder, honey, sesame oil and vegetable oil. You will get a thick paste.
  4. Place chicken pieces into a zip-lock bag and pour in the paste, zip-lock the bag and mix the chicken pieces with the paste.
  5. Leave the bag of chicken to marinate for 4 hours or more in the fridge.
  6. Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
  7. Line a baking tray with a large piece of aluminium foil.
  8. Place a well-greased wire-tray (25cm x 35cm) on the lined baking tray. (Greasing the wire tray will make it easier to clean.
  9. Arrange the pieces of chicken (skin side up) on the wire-tray and pop into the oven.
  10. The skin will tighten, become shiny and some parts will bubble as they cook.
  11. When the skin turns golden brown, approximately 15 mins later, remove the tray from oven, using a metal tong, turn the pieces of chicken over and let the other side brown.
  12. Remove the chicken pieces onto a serving plate, when both sides are golden brown, about 30-40 mins later.
Serve warm with a cucumber salad or green salad.

The chicken pieces are moist if cooked with skin on, the ginger & curry powder give it the right spicy flavor without being too spicy hot for kids.

Remember to line the baking tray with foil to catch any drippings or oil as the chicken cook, so you will have an easy cleaning job.

You can also use this recipe for an open grill or BBQ at your back-yard during summer, or just weekend BBQ with some friends and neighbors. In Malaysia, where it’s always warm and humid year-long, it’s perfect during the holidays or long weekend-break.
