  • A barbecue


The herbs

  • 1 chicken
  • 1 tablespoon Chicken seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon curry
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilly powder
  • salt and pepper

The moisture

  • 1 Big punch oil


Drinking a beer

  • Good news. We need a 33cl can. Anyone in the mood for a beer?
    Fill the empty can half full with water. Any surplus herbs or extra herbs can be poured into the can.

Marinating the Chicken

  • Remove the chicken from the packaging. Remove any binding wire.
  • Take the quantities of the different herbs and mix them together in a jar. Mix with the oil.
  • Use a pastry brush and cap into the spice mixture.
  • Take the chicken by its legs and rub the chicken well with the spices.
  • Always a good idea to let the chicken rest a bit in the spices. So ideally, you should do this a few hours in advance.


  • Turn on the bbq. Not too high. A temperature of up to 175° maximum is desired.
  • While preheating the bbq, you can put the chicken on the can. Be careful, the chicken is slippery. It is best to do this close to the bbq.
  • Put the tin of chicken on the bbq and try to place the leg a little wider for stability. Give the chicken another little nudge down.
    Stable? Then we're ready to bake
  • Chicken is cooked at a core temperature of 70-72°. Ideally, you should use a meat thermometer. The roasting time is easily 1h depending on the size of your chicken.
