in support of the world cup, i am adding some fun to my menus so to kick off heres a recipe from brazil.


serves 4
syns for the rum

500g boneless skinless chicken thighs
3 garlic cloves crushed
1/2 tsp dried or fresh chopped oregano
4tbsp of cachaca (this is a brazilian white rum, i didnt have this one but i had a white rum from poland, it did smell very strong so i only added 3 tbsp and actually i could probably have got away with 2tbsp but everyone loved it)
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 TSP freshly ground black pepper
few sprigs flat leaf parsley
lime wedges

open out the chicken thighs, place on a chopping board and cover with cling film and bash with a meat tenderiser until meat is even thickness.
place in a shallow dish and add garlic, oregano, white rum, salt, pepper.
use your hands to work all the flavours into the meat.
cover and chill , leave to marinate at least 4 hrs

grill on bbq or under the grill and sprinkle with parsley before serving with lime wedges
