19. Moroccan barbecue chicken


2 Lemons, zest only
1 tsp Cumin seeds
2 tsp Coriander seeds
1 tsp coarse sea salt
2 tbsp mixed peppercorns
1 tsp crushed dried chillies
handful coriander leaves, finely chopped
2 - 3 tbsp Olive oil
4 chicken breasts


1. Pound the lemon zest, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, sea salt, mixed peppercorns, chillies and chopped coriander to a coarse consistency, using a pestle and mortar. Stir in the olive oil to form a paste.

2. Smear the chicken breasts with the paste. Cook them on the barbecue over a moderate heat for 10 - 15 minutes or until throughly cooked, turning once during cooking time.

Cook's note: if you do not have a pestle and mortar, put all the ingredients in a freezer bag and pound with a rolling pin.
