If you missed our announcement last week, today marks the start of National BBQ Week. We’re taking on the Ooni X BBQ challenge and firing up all of our favourite BBQ foods in our wood-fired ovens. Today we will prepare Garlic And Herb Chicken but First – competition time!
How to enter? Simply share your own OONI X BBQ dish on our Facebook wall or send it to email@example.com by Monday, June 5th. 3 winners will be announced on Wednesday, June 7th.
Garlic and Herb Chicken Skewers
450g chicken, diced
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 cup of fresh herbs (we used rosemary, thyme, parsley and oregano)
1 tsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp lemon zest
Salt & pepper, to season
Skewers (if wooden, soak in water for at least 1 hour to avoid burning)
1. Place chicken into a bowl and set aside.
2. Mix all remaining ingredients together and coat chicken, refrigerate while you preheat Ooni, or make it the night before for optimum flavour. At this stage, you can add more flavouring if desired – we opted for an additional 1 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce – just to heat things up a little more!
1. With a drizzle of oil, preheat sizzler pan for 1 minute.
2. Thread the chicken pieces onto a skewer (we ended up with 4 skewers with 4-5 pieces of chicken per skewer)
3. Remove sizzler pan, place skewers on and cook in Ooni for approx 6 minutes or until cooked
4. Serve with Oonified veg and a side of your choice (we chose zucchini fritters – recipe coming soon!)
