There are so many reasons why I love this dish. It tastes delicious, requires virtually no preparation, and is completely versatile – making it one of my week night staples.
Serve with fresh lime and salad for a light meal or if you prefer something more substantial enjoy with soft tortillas and your favourite Mexican condiments to make delicious fajitas.
- 6 boneless organic/free range chicken thighs
- 3 tablespoons / 45ml/ 1.5 fl oz olive oil
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Salt and pepper
- Quarter of a fresh lime
Heat the BBQ to high (I allow 10 minutes for my BBQ to heat fully). Place the olive oil in a bowl, add the paprika, season with salt and pepper and stir well. Trim any excess fat from the chicken thighs and place them in the olive oil and paprika mix while the BBQ heats (10 minutes).
Cook on the BBQ for 7.5 minutes each side until cooked all the way through. Remove from heat, squeeze the fresh lime over the thighs and serve immediately.
