Barbecue garlic and coriander chicken recipe

This easy marinade turns plain chicken fillets into something really special. Tangy, zingy flavours make this a midweek meal to remember. Yummo!

Serving Size:




  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 bunch coriander, roots and stems included, washed well
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp peanut oil
  • 6 chicken thigh fillets


Finely chop garlic and coriander.

Combine with other marinade ingredients in a bowl.

Coat chicken in marinade and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

Heat a chargrill or barbecue hot plate until very hot.

Cook chicken for 2-3 minutes on each side, then reduce heat and cook until juices run clear.

Serve with jasmine rice and steamed Asian green vegetables.


  • This recipe involves just a quick chop and mix, then leave it to rest for a couple of hours until you're ready to eat.
  • The barbecue imparts a beautiful smoky flavour, but it's just as delicious cooked in a chargrill pan on the stove top.
