Finger Licking BBQ Chicken


Hi Yvonne

Quick question Friday night is movie night in our house where we chill out and relax with our favourite comfort food I usually buy my chicken legs wings already marinaded but I’m feeling adventurous and want to try a marinade out myself any ideas on how to pimp up my chicken.



Hi Leo

Great idea I remember movie nights here in the Dillon house when boys used to get excited and enjoy them, now we find it impossible to get them to join us willingly (*note to self* book in more compulsory movie nights). I’ve so many amazing memories of movies with my own mam and dad when I was young. My ultimate favourite was ET, my worst movie memory is defo JAWS! The soundtrack music still haunts me to this day. Anyway this is a recipe I tried a few years back I’m sure its from my collection of Ina Garten books. Ina Garten is the queen of family entertaining. Have a look at her website here.



8 skinless chicken drumsticks or thighs

3 tbsp tomato puree

2 tbsp local honey (We purchase ours in the Dungarvan Farmers market from Glenmore Organic Farm)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Juice of ½ lemon

½ tsp crushed dried chillies

1 garlic clove, crushed

Salt and Pepper

BBQ Chicken for a Movie Night


Using a sharp knife, cut slashes into the thickest parts of the chicken flesh.

Mix the tomato puree, honey, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, chillies and garlic together and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss well to coat evenly.

Place the chicken in a ziplock sandwich/freezer bag and seal, place in fridge for a few hours to allow them to infuse. Place the chicken onto a baking tray and bake in a preheated 200 C oven for 20 minutes and turning over after 10 minutes. the slow cooker, cover and cook on high for 3 hours in your slow cooker.

Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and place in a warmed bowl. Don’t forget to pour the remaining juices in the pan over the chicken.


  1. Ensure you have serviettes at hand to catch any stray juices jiggling down your chin!!
  2. Always take poultry and meat from the fridge at least 15 minutes before cooking this will result in more succulent results.
  3. I love to stock up on IKEA zip ISTAD resealable bags they come in various shapes and sizes and are a godsend in any busy household. You can grab them here!

Enjoy your movie night,

Yvonne xoxo
