This recipe for barbequed chicken requires marinating a few hours beforehand but once cooked over the grill creates a delicious Spanish summer flavour. We tried this recipe over our own barbeque after tasting the same char grilled chicken in a nearby restaurant. Served with a glass of cold white Rioja, plum vine tomatoes and mixed salad you can create a real Mediterranean lunch. Don’t forget the crusty bread and olive oil!
