  • Blitz the marinade ingredients in a food processor. Season to taste and add more chilli if you prefer more heat.
  • Place the chicken thighs in a freezer bag and pour in the marinade, reserve a little of the marinade and set aside. Massage into the chicken, close the bag and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C Fan/Gas mark 7. Put the chicken on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Decrease the heat of the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas mark 6 and cook for a further 15-20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to rest. Mix the reserved marinade with the melted butter, juice of 1 lemon and the chopped coriander. Brush the buttery mixture over the chicken and serve with your desired sides, enjoy!
