How To Make Barbecue Chicken

There are two parts of this recipe, the first thing is marinating the chicken and the other one is grilling it. We have marinated our chicken as per our liking, although you can alter the ingredients according to your choice. However, the recipe for barbeque chicken is written down below:



  • Whole chicken, we have used skin-on chicken- 2.5 kg
  • Salt- As per taste
  • Black pepper powder- 1 tablespoon
  • Garlic paste- 1.5 teaspoon
  • Ginger paste- 1.5 teaspoon
  • Chili powder- As per taste, gives a beautiful reddish color
  • Cumin powder- 1.5 teaspoon
  • Soy sauce- 1.5 tablespoon
  • Oil- 2 tablespoons, you can certainly use any oil, but we prefer using mustard oil for an elevated flavor
  • BBQ seasoning mix- As per taste. Use your favorite BBQ seasoning mix
  • BBQ Sauce- As per needed.


  • Firstly, wash the chicken, and pat it dry with a smart kitchen towel.
  • Secondly, give numerous incisions or gashes into the meaty parts of the chicken. This is indeed essential for chicken marination.
  • Now, mix all the ingredients except oil and BBQ sauce and put the chicken in the mix. Make sure to give it a good rub so that all the parts get in touch with the spice mixture. Leave the chicken for at least 6 hours, but overnight would be the best.
  • Prepare your grill machine, put charcoal on it, ignite some charcoal with the chimney starter. Leave the ignited charcoal in the grill machine so that it turn red.
  • As soon as it has been turned red, place the chicken meat side down. Put a lid on the chicken, so the juice remains intact.
  • Turn the chicken once the meat side is done, and again put on the lid.
  • Turn the chicken multiple times, and brush oil on every time you flip it so that it remains juicy.
  • When the chicken is almost done, brush some BBQ sauce on the chicken, and let it char for a few minutes.
  • Check the temperature with the meat thermometer, if reached to your expected temperature, your Barbeque chicken is certainly done.
  • Serve warm with your favorite condiments and also with suitable side dishes, Bon appétit!
