Tenderised chicken breasts

Tenderised chicken breasts

Braaing (bbq’ing) tends to be a lengthy affair with the food often arriving much later than anticipated. In order to avoid the kids pigging out on salty snacks or having to make them a totally separate meal, I would suggest trying tenderised marinated chicken breasts.
Using a meat mallet flatten the breasts to about 1cm thick as in the picture above. Marinade them in your favourite store bought marinade or make your own. 
Some suggestions would be to combine a little yoghurt, chutney and salt; or some olive oil, honey, lemon juice and salt; or olive oil, a little chopped rosemary, garlic and salt. You can leave this in the fridge until ready for use or use it right away.
The chicken can be grilled on the fire before it has made coals. They take literally 2 minutes per side and are ready to pop into a bun or slice up and eat just like that.
Prepare a few extra to slice up as a welcome snack for the adults too.

  1. This chicken is not chicken anymore. It tastes like a better, yummier, more exquisite version of chicken. I can't believe that a bit of beating it with a mallet and some marinade would make such a difference. I feel quite sad for myself that I have only discovered this now and actually ate boring normal chicken for all these years…
