You can’t get any easier than this recipe!

Perfect for the back yard BBQ or if you’re strapped for time and really want a quick, easy and tasty meal.  Try barbecuing it on a wood charcoal hibachi, it gives that extra smokey flavour that goes well with this type of marinade.  Pork is also a good substitute for chicken

There’s nothing much more to say about it!
