Makes 6 servings
- 2 lbs to 2 ¼ lb chicken thighs (boneless and skinless, or skin on)
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons ground coriander
- 8 cloves minced garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne
- 2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoon allspice
How to make it
Place all ingredients except chicken in a bowl and mix, or pulse in a food processor to make a paste.
Rub chicken on all sides with the marinade, and let sit 20 minutes (or up to 24 hours refrigerated).
Grill chicken on a pre-heated BBQ, on medium-high heat, closing the lid to the BBQ, until all sides have nice grill marks, about 8 minutes each side. Finish chicken in a 350° oven until cooked all the way through, about 10 minutes.
