READY IN: 24hrs 30mins




  • Cut the chicken in half lengthways, and if you like, remove the bones with a small pointed knife, leaving only the wing bones.
  • If using chicken pieces, proceed directly to step 2.
  • Crush the garlic with the salt to a smooth paste.
  • Coarsely crush the peppercorns in a motar and pestle or a blender.
  • Combine in a flat dish with the coriander, and the lime juice.
  • Rub the mixture into the cicken on all sides, cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least an hour.
  • However, this recipe tastes better if refrigerated over night.
  • Barbecue the chicken halves or chicken pieces, turning the chicken every 5 minutes or so, until the chicken is no longer pink and the skin is crisp.
  • If the weather does not permit, you can cook under a grill, (broiler) or in the oven.
  • To serve the boned chicken, diagonally slice the chicken skin side up and place on a serving platter.
  • If using chicken pieces arrange the pieces on a serving platter.
  • Garnish with halved cherry tomatoes and curls of spring (green) onions.
  • Serve with a salad of sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumber and spring (green) onions which have been seasoned with lime juice and salt only.
  • A side dish of steamed rice goes well with this dish.
