CHICKEN BARBECUE

Barbecued meat is very popular in Georgia both as a family meal and also at feasts and celebrations. Pork is the most popular meat, followed by chicken. In this recipe we will show you how to prepare barbecued chicken.

Ingredients:

1 kilo of chicken breasts, 1 large onion, 1 clove of garlic, 2 tbs of tomato puree, pinch of black pepper, 3 tbs sugar, 3 tbs of coarse salt, half tsp of powdered Berberis berries, half tsp of powdered saffron and 1 liter of water.

Preparation:

Make a marinade: Do this at least 12 hours before cooking so that the meat becomes soft and full of flavor. Add the salt and sugar and 1 tbs of tomato puree to a mixing bowl. Add 1 liter of water and stir until the sugar and salt has dissolved. Cut the clove of garlic into four pieces and add to the mixture. Add the bay leaves. Add the chicken breasts, cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator.

The marinated chicken can be used in many recipes but we chose to barbecue it.

When you are ready to cook, remove the bowl of marinated chicken from the refrigerator and drain the water. Cut the chicken breasts into medium sized cubes and put them in a mixing bowl. Add 1 tbs of tomato puree, saffron, powdered Berberis berries and black pepper.

Stir until all ingredients are mixed.

Add the cubed chicken to barbecue skewers. Georgians call these shampuri (Georgian: შამფური)

Place skewers on a barbecue. Our type of barbecue is called a makhali in Georgian (Georgian: მაყალი).

Turn skewers regularly to ensure the meat is thoroughly cooked.

We ate our barbecued chicken with tomatoes and sliced onions. Delicious!

Enjoy your barbecue!
