Sticky Barbecue Chicken

Terrific cooked on a barbecue but also equally as good roasted in the oven until beautifully bronzed.




20 mins


35 mins


  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 rounded tbsp Tate & Lyle Light Muscovado Sugar
  • 4 rosemary branches
  • a few bay leaves
  • 4 chicken thighs
  • 4 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 heads garlic (cut in half)
  • 2 lemons (cut into large chunks)
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice, Tate & Lyle Light Muscovado Sugar, rosemary and bay leaves in a large bowl. Add the chicken, garlic, lemons and seasoning and toss to lightly coat everything with the oily mixture. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
  2. If cooking on a BBQ - arrange the chicken, garlic halves and lemons on the barbecue and cook over a moderate heat turning from time to time for about 20-35 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken, or until the chicken is browned and cooked through and the garlic is tender. Transfer to a dish and serve.
  3. If cooking in the oven put in oven proof dish and cook in a preheated oven for 35 minutes at 220°C/Fan 200°, 425°F, Gas 7.
