Cabana's Spicy Malagueta Chicken

Get your grill on this summer with Caban's David Ponte

David Ponte restaurateur and owner of the authentic Brazilian barbecue restaurants Cabana that have brought a touch of Brazilian vibrancy to the UK shares his recipe for Spicy Malagueta Chicken with TOAST today, so now you can get out and get grilling on the BBQ this summer!

What you will need

-        500g boneless, skinless chicken thighs

-        5 tbsp Spicy Malagueta Marinade (page 72)

-        1 large red pepper

-        1 quantity Honey Mustard Glaze (page 77)

-        sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


Trim off any excess fat from the chicken thighs. Place them in a bowl, add the Spicy Malagueta Marinade and toss to coat evenly.

Cover with clingfilm and store in the fridge. Let the chicken marinate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

Light the barbecue and let the flames die down before starting to cook. If cooking indoors, preheat the grill to medium.

Deseed the pepper and cut it into 2–3cm thick strips. Thread the peppers and chicken thighs alternately on to 4 or 5 metal skewers. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 10–15 minutes, turning occasionally.

Baste with the honey glaze and return to the heat for a few more minutes until golden brown and just cooked through.

The chicken thighs should feel firm when ready. Remove the skewers and leave to rest for a few minutes, then serve hot.

They’re great with Sweet Potato Fries.
