Best Ever BBQ Chicken with Moroccan Spice

Serves 4
  • 1 whole free range chicken
  • ½ cup Best Foods™ Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon Moroccan spice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped mint
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Spray oil
  • 1 teaspoon Moroccan spice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lemon cut into 4 wedges


Preparation time: 15-20minutes

Cook time: 30-40 minutes


  1. To prepare the chicken cut down the breast bone to flatten out the chicken. Arrange the chicken on a large piece of tin foil, skin side up. 
  2. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, zest, Moroccan spice, mint and garlic. 
  3. Carefully prise the skin away from the chicken flesh and spoon the mayonnaise marinade up under the skin so it creates a layer between the flesh and skin this will help the chicken stay moist and flavoursome.
  4. Spray the chicken with the oil and rub the spice, honey and salt all over the outer skin. 
  5. Place tin foil and chicken on the hot plate and curve foil up to create a dish for the juices. 
  6. Arrange the lemon wedges around the chicken and barbeque for about 30 minutes at a medium heat, until golden and the juices run clear. Rest for 5 minutes before carving.
