Pete and I braai quite often, actually very regularly and having lived in Mauritius for a period of 2 and a half years, we had to get accustomed to eating a lot more chicken than red meat due to the astronomical cost of meat which meant I had to get adventurous on occasion for a new flavour for a chicken braai (barbecue) plus one of the few fresh herbs available on the island is thyme. This marinade turned out nicer than I had anticipated. 🙂
250ml white wine – I used chardonnay
125ml cup brown sugar
60ml tomato paste
2 garlic cloves crushed
20ml fresh thyme leaves
- Blend all ingredients together.
- Marinate chicken pieces for an hour before cooking or braaing (barbecuing)
- Baste chicken with marinade during cooking.
This marinade is sufficient for at least 12 pieces of chicken.
