If you are looking for a new spin on BBQ Chicken, look no further. Calicutts Moroccan Ras El Hanout is often overlooked, but the bright cinnamons and cumin of the Blend mixed with sweet honey makes just another weeknight chicken dinner shine.
Moroccan Ras el Hanout BBQ Chicken
8 Chicken thighs, with skin
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 Tbsp Calicutts Ras El Hanout Spice Blend
3 Tbsp Honey
1 Lemon, juiced
1 Tbsp Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
3 Garlic cloves, minced
Whisk together all ingredients except for the chicken thighs in a large bowl until the oil, honey, and lemon are blended thoroughly. Add chicken thighs and toss until covered entirely. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate overnight.
If using the oven - Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place chicken thighs on a foil-lined baking sheet, skin up, and cook for approximately 30-40 minutes until they reach 165 degrees. If grilling, use medium-high heat with the skin side down for approximately 4-5 minutes. Flip and grill on the other side for equal time until cooked thoroughly (165 degrees). Please note cooking times are approximate and depend upon whether or not your chicken has bones in it.
