Mustard & Peri Peri flavoured grilled chicken


by: Keli Paan

Both K & I missed eating chicken during our holiday trip to some of the European countries… There were hardly any dishes served with chicken in the restaurants around Italy… & also since we wanted to enjoy the authentic food of every region we visited we had to let chicken go.. :P People eat loads of processed meat & cheese.. :) I can't complain cause we thoroughly enjoyed all the Panini's, the freshly made Pizza's & Focaccia's… I did not see even one Pizza Hut in Italy.. :P guess they don't have them or I did not end up seeing any.. who would eat from Pizza Hut anyways when there are at least 15-20 pizzeria's in every street.. !! After we got back I wanted to eat chicken which I missed… Pretty simple this one.. I marinated chicken with some Dijon mustard & some peri peri sauce to come up with this dish.. You can have this as a starter or as a side with your main course.. I also served this on a bed of lightly grilled broccoli & red onions along with a honey mustard yogurt sauce.. I marinated the chicken for 2 whole days.. You can marinate it overnight…

1.  Wash the chicken pieces & drain them & keep aside. Now mix all the ingredients mentioned for the marinade in a bowl. Either add the chicken pieces directly to the bowl or spoon out the marinade over the chicken pieces.

2.  Tip: If any any untouched marinade is left over, you can make a potato salad with the same.. :)

3.  Refrigerate the chicken pieces & let them marinate at least overnight & absorb the flavours.. !

4.  Set your oven in the grill mode at setting 3 & grill the chicken pieces for 30 minutes or till done. Midway turn them around if required. 5-10 mins before the chicken is ready add some veggies of your choice & lightly grill them. I grilled some broccoli & red onions.

5.  In the meanwhile mix the yogurt & honey mustard along with salt to taste to make a sauce.

6.  Serving Suggestions:

7.  Serve hot with the grilled veggies & the yogurt sauce. I also added some chaat masala for the tangy flavour.
