Paprika-chicken.jpgIngredients:

  • 4 Chicken breast fillets, about 100g (3.5 oz) each.

For The Baste:

  • 2 Tablespoons tomato purée.
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice.
  • 2 Tablespoons cider vinegar.
  • 2 Tablespoons soft brown sugar.
  • 2 Teaspoons paprika.
  • 1 Clove garlic, crushed.
  • ¼ Teaspoon salt.
  • Pinch Blackpepper.

Method:

In a bowl, mix together tomato purée, lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, paprika, garlic, salt and black pepper. Preheat the grill or prepare a braai fire. Put the chicken onto the grill pan or braai grid and brush with the baste mixture. Grill for 5 minutes, basting occasionally. Turn over chicken and baste other side. Grill or braai for a further 5 minutes on each side, basting regularly.

Prepare Ahead:

You can marinate the chicken in the tomato purée mixture up to 3 hours before cooking. Turn the chicken in the mixture to coat evenly, then cover and keep in the fridge until required. Marinating the chicken allows the flavours to develop and gives a more taste when cooked.
