1. Roast Chicken marinate made easy
I’ve eaten the best grilled chicken ever in Saint Tropez.
A long time ago I worked there in different restaurants, the free day I could spend at the beach. Sometimes the cook also needs a break 🙂
I noticed the stall with grill chicken already on the second day. It was a normal grill with skewers, and the delicious, browned grill chickens smelled excellent.
In France many things are cooked better and differently… the colleagues prepared a Provencal vegetable in the lower part of the grill, in the drip tray. Peppers, garlic, aubergines lay there in a delicious sauce… No fries, no potato salad, just chicken with vegetables, gravy and baguette.
After a few days I could make friends with the grill chicken professionals. The recipe for the marinade I could learn later from Pierre.
Grill marinade for a chicken: 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon paprika powder, 1 teaspoon sugar, pepper and salt
Pierre marinated his chickens in the morning after shopping at the market without salt. He then added salt to the basic marinade and brushed the chickens with a brush while grilling.
For preparing the chicken at home, I learned a few things for myself:
- Put the chicken in a freezer bag and the marinade together.
- Close the freezer bag, tie the knot and marinate the chicken well by massaging.
- Let the marinated chicken mature for 2-3 hours in the fridge with the spices.
- Prepare the chicken with vegetables on the baking tray in the oven at high temperature, 200°C hot air.
If you want it to go faster, just season the chicken with salt and pepper and put it directly in the oven with the vegetables. I’ll show you this variation later in the recipe.
