I created this simple marinade recipe when I lived in Australia by using spices I had in my kitchen at that time, and the result was great! My partner loves it so much, and most importantly it is healthy and easy to prepare. The BBQ chicken can be an option for your sandwiches or burgers filling too.

It is for 4-5 servings. Cheers!
