After baking and filming my Sugar bread recipe, I had to schedule in my weekly lunches for work.
I decided to grab a few items from my local grocer. I bought a whole Chicken, a couple of Salmom fillets and Pork ribs.
I started to create an aromatic marinade and decided to include a few Alligator Peppers, to my blend. A quick smell and taste of my marinade made me smile (cause I realised I had created a unique flavour).
I quickly marinated my Chicken and Pork ribs in my newly created flavour. I placed the marinated meat in the fridge to continue cooking the next day.
I was exhausted and decided to to take rest. A notification alert from my phone (asking for a Gari Fortor recipe) had me smiling the next day.
I knew, I had just about enough Gari for the recipe. The idea that I could serve the Gari fortor alongside the grilled Chicken, had my taste buds tingling.
This is an easy to follow recipe and a must try.
Best to marinade your meat or poultry for a minimum of 3hrs or better still overnight in the fridge.
Avoid adding salt when marinating (as the Salt absorbs moisture).
20g of peeled Ginger
1 large Onion
1 Habanero chilli
1 tablespoonful of Olive oil
1 levelled teaspoon of Aniseed
2 Star anise
1 levelled teaspoon of Alligator peppers
3 cloves of Garlic
Juice of 1 Lemon or Lime
1 tablespoonful of Paprika
Half a teaspoon of freshly milled black peppercorns
Half a teaspoon of salt
1 packet of Chicken pieces (Preferably Drumsticks and Thighs)
Blend the Ginger, Onion, Star Anise, Alligator peppers, Garlic and Habanero chilli into a smooth paste.
Add the spice blend to the Chicken and Paprika. Massage the spice blend into the Chicken pieces and marinade in the fridge for a minimum of 3 hrs or better still overnight.
When ready to cook the Chicken, remove the Chicken from the fridge and pre heat your grill to 180*c
Add salt and Olive oil to the marinated Chicken and mix till well combined.
Grill your Chicken for 35 minutes.
