To celebrate a fantastic holiday in the USA (which is also why I didn’t post much in September), I wanted to cook something a bit different to what we’d enjoyed in the States. In a “root around the pantry and find what’s available” moment, along with inspiration from fashion guru Gok Wan, some delicious duck breast with plum and tamarind sauce was served …
Sometimes a Christmas gift can be forgotten. In this case, it was Indian spice and chutney, a gift from my wife … oops. On discovering it the pantry, I made Indian spiced chicken wings a go. It turned out to be a delicious combination, so I cooked it again with chicken thighs.
A glaze or marinade can make the humble chicken shine, especially when there is a flavoursome dry rub used as a base. After trying some commercial products that were too salty and sweet, I decided to make my own.
Enjoy this simple, effective and very tasty homemade glaze for cooking chicken in a covered BBQ, Big Green Egg or conventional oven.
This is a simple recipe for a great dipping sauce, with a couple of off the wall ingredients to give it a bit of a kick. Superb with Rustic Pub Scotch Eggs as well as pretty much anything cooked al fresco in the Great British Summer … whenever that might happen.
