Barbecue is one of the oldest methods of cooking meat. From its origin in the Caribbean to the classic tandoor of India, the barbecue style of cooking has come a long way. Barbecue dishes are smoky, fiery, crispy, full of flavour and perfect for a BBQ night in winters or a Sunday afternoon meal! Nowadays, one can get a barbecue grill at home but those who don't have grill/tandoor can cook in an oven or microwave too. Barbecue chicken is one of the most popular dishes across the globe. The smoky flavours of the lean meat make it an ideal dish to play around with tangy sauces, spices and herbs that blend in seamlessly with the versatile chicken.
While the process of cooking a barbecue chicken may look tedious at first but it is actually quite easy. All you need is to toss a mouth-watering marinade, where you can experiment with different types of sauces, seasonings, chillis and herbs that will make for the essence of your barbecue chicken.
