Life's so complicated when in quarantine...specially for all the 'house chefs' out there!
You can't find all the ingredients/products you need to make your dishes...your favorite spice is finished...the stores are closed...
but you still have to prepare food to feed everyone at home! Isn't it!?
Today I found myself in this situation...not the first time btw!
Decided to make some charcoal grill chicken...but had just a little quantity of charcoal...how to do!?? Hmmm!
What to do!?!
Check out how I managed with that little charcoal and got all the chicken thighs well grilled!
When there's a will there's a way! ✅
Quarantine charcoal grilled chicken 2.0!
ps. This is just the charcoal without the chicken!Lol!
So instead of grilling the chicken on charcoal for a long time...I decided to pre-cook them in the oven first!
- Cut open the thighs as you can see below, eliminate that big bone on the side - Will help cook quicker! 😉
Marinate as you like, I went for garlic paste, salt, tandoori spice, bbq spice, pepper and little olive oil.
Cover with aluminum foil and put in oven at 165°C for about 12 minutes!
After 12 minutes, this is how the thighs will look like, nearly cooked!
Complete the cooking on that little charcoal to get the amazing smoky flavor!
While the chicken were cooking...
I gathered all the bits of fruits and salads that were lying there in the fridge looking for some mouths to enjoy them!!!😁😁😁
I cleaned and cut them to get that sexy look!
Then for the salad dressing, I simply pressed the rest of the oranges, put the juice in a bowl, added salt and pepper + a spoon of mustard paste + Olive oil.
Whisk well until consistency of a vinaigrette!
Final steps were to bake the breads and fry the French fries! (sounds weird...fry the french fries, nah!?)
And just like that...Dinner was ready!
Bon apetit my friends !
Spent less than an hour in the kitchen preparing this little dinner!
Prepared for 12 people in all...everyone was super happy! 😊😊😊
Hope you like it same as we all enjoyed

Wish you well!
