Garlicky Chicken with Mango Butter

Garlicky Chicken with Mango Butter

This recipe is very easy and does not take a lot of time. You do need to marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes but longer would be better. This recipe does not require a lot of spices and all of them are available at US markets. I used one tablespoon of chili powder in the chicken pictured above.

12 garlic cloves, finely shredded
4 tsp chili powder
8 tbsp lemon juice
16 chicken legs, skinned and pricked

For the mango butter
1 very ripe mango, peeled, pit removed, flesh mashed
8 tbsp softened butter or margarine

Combine garlic, chili powder, lemon juice, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add chicken legs and let them stand for at least 30 minutes, overnight if you have the time.

Meanwhile, make the mango butter by simply combining the 2 ingredients until you get a fairly smooth consistency. Reserve.

When the chicken is well marinated, place it on a hot barbecue and cook on both sides until done and tender right to the bone. Serve at once with the mango butter.
