SPICY INDIA BBQ Grilled Chicken with Cucumber & Coconut Salad

SPICY INDIA captures the essence of this colourful land through exotic spices & sweet pungent flavor. It is a medium spiced, sweet, tangy green chilli, pineapple and masala sauce inspired by the West Indian Ananas chutney. Mouthwatering as a spicy condiment, marinade like this recipe or whisk in a little olive oil, lemon juice & drizzle over a salad.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 5-10mins (+ marinating time)
Cook time: 20-25mins


½ cup Alana’s Pantry Spicy India sauce (available at Coles Supermarkets)
2tbsp olive oil
4 chicken marylands
2 cucumbers, finely shaved
¼ flaked coconut
2 tbsp lime juice
3 tbsp coconut water
½ tsp salt flakes


In a large mixing bowl, mix together the Alana’s Pantry Spicy India sauce and the olive oil. Set aside.
On a clean chopping board, place the chicken marylands onto it, skin side up. Using a sharp knife, make deep slashes along the thigh and the leg meat. Place the chicken into the mixing bowl with the marinade and rub the marinade into the chicken and right into the deep slashes. Set aside in the fridge to marinate for 15-30mins.
Preheat the hooded BBQ grill plate to a medium-high heat. Place the chicken on the heated grill plate, skin side down and turn the heat down slightly. Cook for approximately 7-8 mins or until you can see the scorch marks on the skin, take care not to burn. Turn the chicken over and put the hood down and continue to cook for a further 10-12 mins or until the chicken is completely cooked through. If you don’t have a hooded BBQ, just take care not to burn the chicken before the meat is fully cooked, or finish it off in the oven to ensure it is cooked through.
Meanwhile, to prepare the salad, place the cucumber onto a serving platter and sprinkle with the flaked coconut. Mix together the lime juice, coconut water and salt flakes and drizzle over the cucumber and flaked coconut.
Serve the grilled BBQ chicken with the fresh cucumber and coconut salad.
