A Kiwi Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a delicious barbecued meal. We love this easy barbecued butterflied chicken and fresh green salad to share with loved ones. Dine alfresco for a memorable and relaxed summer Christmas.
- For the chicken: Preheat the barbecue to medium heat. Drizzle with oil then barbecue the butterflied chicken on medium heat for 20 minutes, then low heat for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through, turning occasionally.
- When the chicken has 20 minutes to go, make the salad dressing. Add all ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth. Add water if the dressing is too thick, then season with salt and pepper.
- For the salad: add all salad ingredients to a bowl or serving platter. Sprinkle with fresh herbs and macadamias. Pour over dressing.
- Serve salad with hot barbecued chicken.
Tip: We suggest using a meat thermometer for the butterflied chicken. Poultry should be fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 82°C. Thermometers should be placed in the deepest part of the poultry.
