Boyfriend Chicken

Since I got this recipe from a friend of a friend, I can only speculate that this is called boyfriend chicken because any man who eats it will want to stay with you indefinitely, or at least until he can steal the recipe. It went so fast at today's BBQ, I didn't even remember to take a picture. Couple recommendations for full boyfriend-luring capabilities: make sure you marinate your chicken overnight, and it tastes much better if you eat it with your hands.

The BBQ aftermath...
Boyfriend Chicken

1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces

¼ coarse chopped parsley
¾ cup chopped cilantro
5 large garlic cloves
1 ½ tsp each:

  • Kosher salt
  • Paprika
  • Ground cumin

½ tsp dried thyme
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

Place all ingredients except oil and lemon juice in food processor and process until a paste forms. Pour oil and lemon juice into processor as its running until well blended. Place marinade into sturdy ziploc bag with your chicken, put in the fridge until ready to grill.

Is this a recipe or a black magic potion.Either way, it sounds great. And, I agree with you, it does taste better when you eat with your hands.
