Spicy Grilled Chicken by Mel's Kitchen

You know how I always say I'm so blessed to have people who are so willing to cook for me and my family? Well, my good friend Mel (aka Mrs P) is definitely one of those people and her greatest ambition is to become the perfect wife and mother on top of juggling a full time job.

After much pursuasion (and persistent nagging) from me, she's finally debuting one of her recipes on my blog! *excited*

Spicy Grilled Chicken

You will need:
4 chicken thighs
Spaghetti or rice
2 stalks each of fresh Basil, Thyme & Marjoram (washed & chopped)
2 tablespoons of Cajun Spice Blend
4 tablespoons of Chilli Powder
3 tablespoons of Lime Juice
3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of Sugar
A pinch of Salt

(All are for marination, except for the 1st two ingredients)

Preparation for marination

Marinate chicken thighs with the marination blend as listed in the ingredients list above.

After marination

Leave the marinated mixture in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

When you're ready to cook, warm up the Happy Call Pan and drizzle it with olive oil. Next, pan fry the chicken thighs for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side. Then, remove and place the chicken in the oven and continue to grill it for 6 minutes.

Lastly, serve the grilled chicken with spaghetti, mash potatoes or butter rice, depending on your family's preference.

And viola! It's so simple and tasty, it's perfect for the busy working mother to cook for her family. I hope you will have a fun time cooking and eating this dish! Enjoy!
