Hola lovely people! Yes, I know, What a lovely surprise this is! I haven’t post anything for a while, but I have been doing so many things, that I hardly had time to write. Anyway, I hope you are all ok and you are starting to enjoy the lovely weather, because the summer is now officially just around the corner!
Today’s recipe is inspired in my friend Nadim’s chicken thighs recipe, he is a very good cook and has two lovely recipes for chicken that are always a hit when we have a bbq, but I would say that my recipe is the Mexican version of his as I marinated the chicken thighs in Ancho chilli and other mexican spices.
Some of the ingredients are easily available in the UK and other you will have to get them online in any of the Mexican websites that sell Mexican ingredients. So this is my first recipe of many for this summer, which is my favourite season, as a Mexican I guess it has to be, although I do know some Mexicans who live in very hot places that would love to have some of the weather we get in lovely England.
This recipe can be cooked in the oven or on the bbq grilled, read the tip section at the end to find out more about cooking the chicken on the bbq.
Well, I hope you are having a lovely evening!
- I bought my ground ancho chilli and dried epazote with Mextrade (www.mextrade.co.uk)
- I always try to buy organic when I can, but it is not compulsory to buy organic chicken and potatoes if you do not want.
- If you are having a bbq, just place the chicken on the grill and you can wrap the potatoes in foil and place them in the grill. The cooking time will change depending on the heat.
