Oven Grilled Chicken ( Marinade.)

My ultimate marinade for chicken. It never disappoints and we all know how important it is to marinate your chicken. Marinating overnight is very important to me , chicken always comes out tasty. 


  • One whole chicken
  • 2/3 whole red/ yellow onions 
  • 2Tbs Thyme
  • 6 cloves of Garlic
  • Ginger
  • 3TbsOlive oil
  • Paprika
  • Salt
  • Bouillon cubes
  • Pepper (for very spicy use scotch bonnet)


  • Clean chicken and make incisions. You can cut them to bits or grill whole.
  • Blend all other ingredients together and pour some into bowl and keep away in your fridge.(add a bit of water when blending)
  • Pour marinade over chicken, making sure it covers chicken.

  • Cover chicken and put in the fridge to marinate overnight.
  • Preheat oven 180c

  • Using skewers are optional if you have none. 
  • Place chicken on oven tray and put into the preheated oven. Don’t forget Marinade that was set aside. Using a pastry brush , brush on marinade when chicken is roasting from time to time. 
  • My chicken was a small and very tender chicken , took about 45minutues to roast to perfection.

  1. Hi
    What can I use in place of paprika and olive oil? Trying this from Nigeria and these items are a bit expensive 💀


      1. Back here after many months and tbh, I didn’t think it’ll be this delicious even my mum who’s scared of home grilled chicken was pleasantly surprised. 10/10 will always recommend. Keep up the good work
