Ingredients

  • 12 Coles RSPCA Approved Australian Chicken Drumsticks
  • 1 cup (250ml) pineapple juice
  • 1 cup (250ml) ginger beer
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 2 tsp chilli paste (optional)
  • 2 tsp ground paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 mini pineapple, trimmed, thickly sliced

Method

STEP 1

Place the chicken in a large bowl. Combine pineapple juice, ginger beer, spring onion, sugar, soy sauce, chilli paste, if using, paprika and cumin in a small bowl. Season. Pour over the chicken and turn to coat. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to marinate.

SETP 2

Drain chicken, reserving marinade. Heat a greased covered barbecue on medium. Cook chicken, covered, turning, for 20 mins or until golden brown and cooked through. (Alternatively, roast at 200°C, turning halfway, for 30 mins or until cooked through.) Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, place the reserved marinade in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Cook for 5 mins or until the marinade thickens.

STEP 4

Increase barbecue to high. Spray the pineapple with olive oil spray. Cook on barbecue for 2-3 mins each side or until lightly charred.

STEP 5

Arrange the chicken and pineapple on a serving platter. Drizzle with sauce.

Serve with thinly sliced red chilli, coriander sprigs, spring onion curls and lime wedges
