Garlic and Brown Sugar BBQ Chicken

Adapted from a Pinterest find, this is an easy and delicious method for chicken and fantastic when charred on the BBQ in the summer.

What you will need:

4 large skinless, boneless chicken thighs

4 cloves of garlic, minced

5-6 tbs of brown sugar

3 tbs of Olive Oil


Remove excess fat/ cartilage from thighs

Heat oil in a skillet on med heat. Fry garlic until golden brown and remove from heat once done. Add the brown sugar and melt slightly in the garlic mix, then coat chicken thighs.

BBQ thighs on med-high heat for 12-15 mins, or until crispy and slightly blackened on the outside and juicy on the inside.

This goes great with a medley of marinated vegetables, which can also be done on the BBQ for a mess-free week night dinner.


What you will need:

1 green zucchini

1 yellow zucchini

1 red bell pepper

1 onion

3 carrots

1 tsp rosemary

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp oregano

1/4 tsp chili flakes

1/4 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper

3 tbs Olive Oil

Chop all vegetables according to your liking. Toss with fresh or dried herbs, salt, pepper and oil. Cover and marinate for at least half an hour in the fridge.

Combine veg loosely in a foil pack, leaving space for them to steam inside. Place wrap on the BBQ 5 minutes before the chicken.


Serve BBQ chicken and vegetables with rice or salad and enjoy!
