How to Clean your BBQ


1. Put the chicken into a bowl and add the stock, allspice, chilli, spring onion, lemon zest and brown sugar. Mix well and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

2. If using fresh corn cobs cook the corn in boiling water for 5 minutes. Allow to cool then slice kernels off the cob.

3. Put corn, red onion, avocado, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, coriander, honey, vinegar and 3 Tbsp of the oil in a bowl and mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. Drain the chicken, brush with remaining 2 Tbsp oil and oven grill or barbecue on moderate heat for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.

5. Remove from the heat and rest the chicken for 5 minutes. Slice the chicken across the grain of the meat.

6. Place lettuce leaves on serving plates, and arrange the corn and avocado mix and chicken on top. Serve immediately.

Smart Tip:

Marinating the chicken in stock means chicken remains moist when cooked.
