This is a delicious no-fuss BBQ chicken marinade that can be made in minutes!
Serves 4
Prep time: 5 minutes (plus 5-10 minutes marinade time)
Cooking time:  10-15 minutes
½ red chilli, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 ½ tsp smoked paprika
1½ tsp Dijon mustard
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp olive oil
Pinch of sea salt & freshly ground pepper
4 chicken breasts or thighs
Preparation method
1.  In a large bowl place the chilli, garlic, paprika, mustard, honey, ketchup, oil and seasoning.  Mix well and set aside 2 tbsp of the marinade.
2.  Add the chicken to the bowl of marinade and coat thoroughly, cover with cling film and allow to marinade for 5-10 minutes.
3.  If using a grill pan or grill, put it over a high heat to get it steaming hot.  Use tongs to transfer your chicken onto the grill or grill pan.  For chicken about 1 inch thick, cook for about 5 minutes on each side, turning and basting until golden and cooked through.  Spoon a little of the reserved sauce over the chicken.
4.  Serve hot or cold with fresh green salad. Enjoy!
