CHEF'S TIP

  • We recommend serving your sticky barbecue chicken with Mediterranean vegetables, a pasta salad, or other meats. Halloumi is also usually a popular and welcome addition, particularly if you already plan to use the barbecue for your sticky chicken.
  • If you’re feeling extra adventurous, a dash of your favourite spice or hot sauce wouldn’t go amiss! If you opt for herbs, our recommendations include cayenne pepper, coriander or cumin, or perhaps even a sprinkle of paprika.
