Grilled Coriander Garlic Chicken

grilled-chicken

If you want really really juicy chicken, then get yourself a good meat thermometer. Chicken is cooked when its internal temperature has reached 75 degrees Centigrade. You cannot judge this visually nor by touch. The safest and easiest way is to poke in the thermometer and check.

Rub chopped garlic, coriander, olive oil, coriander powder and salt on chicken legs and breast. I had exactly half a chicken and that is what went into the oven. I am not a big fan of full birds when time is scarce. A bird divided into four separate portions cooks much better.

Chicken is placed on an oiled grill with a flat tray underneath. Wrap the in foil and you save yourself a lot of time while cleaning.

The oven must be preheated to 200 and the chicken stays inside for almost 40 mins. Then turn the pieces over after checking the temperature. Do not let the temperature cross 77 degrees. Around 80 degrees you have started destroying its texture. Any higher and you will be eating cardboard.

Enjoy the super juicy chicken with your family.
