RECIPE: Stoffell’s Marinated Barbeque Chicken 

Chicken drumsticks, chicken thighs or chicken fillet skewers, it’s up to you! This super easy way to add guilt-free flavour to your BBQ meats takes just minutes to prepare.

Preparing the Chicken

  • Light the BBQ and thoroughly heat until a temperature of 110ºC – 120ºC is maintained.
    • TIP: Position a pan or foil tray of water next to the charcoal to help keep the chicken moist as it cooks!
  • Season the raw chicken and place on the BBQ. Allow to slow cook for 3 hours.
    • TIP: Baste the chicken in apple juice every 30-45 minutes to maintain a sweet, juicy flavour!

Preparing the Barbeque Sauce

  • Pour 1 bottle of Stoffell’s Barbeque Sauce into a bowl
  • Add 1 tablespoon of Rapeseed Oil to the bowl
  • Mix together until a smooth consistency is reached
  • In the final 10-15 minutes of cooking, paint the BBQ marinade sauce over the chicken, turning it over to create an overall even covering on both sides
  • Cook the chicken for a final 10 to 15 minutes to brown over
  • Serve piping hot!

Don’t want to BBQ?

Season the raw chicken and place on a tray. Cook the chicken in the oven at 180ºC for 30-40 minutes. 10 minutes before serving remove the chicken, paint on your BBQ sauce and re-place in the oven for a further final 10 minutes to brown over!

Usually cooking with sauces as marinades leaves the meat tasting burnt because of the sugar in the sauce being over heated – but not with Stoffell’s! Our naturally sweetened sauces can absolutely be heated and used as marinades because they all contain no added sugars! 

Perfect for the BBQ and your summer evening of fun in the sun! YUM!
