Ingredients

  • Chopped veg (peppers, onion, par boiled potato) chunky chopped so it doesn’t fall through the bbq grills

Method

  • Mix together all of the marinade ingredients, pop the chicken in the bowl with the marinade and leave for at least 2 hours (over night is ideal)

  • In a bowl mix the wild garlic, hogweed stems oil and plenty of salt and pepper

  • Do the same with the rest of the veg to get them nicely coated with a little oil and lots of seasoning (this makes a crispy incredibly tasty edges to the veg)

  • Heat up the BBQ until smoking hot and start by cooking the onion, pepper, and chicken
