Diet.Chef's picture
  Chicken quarters 4
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Dried thyme 2 Teaspoon
  Green salad 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (To Serve)
  Lemon slices 3 (To Serve)
  Garlic 5 Clove (25 gm), crushed
  Egg yolks 2
  Sunflower oil 4 Fluid Ounce (120 Milliliter / 1/2 Cup)
  Olive oil 4 Fluid Ounce (120 Milliliter / 1/2 Cup)
  Lemon juice 2 Teaspoon

1. Using a skewer, prick the chicken quarters in several places then place them in a shallow dish.
2. Combine the oil, lemon juice, thyme and seasoning, then pour over the chicken, turning to coat the chicken evenly. Set aside for 2 hours.
3. To make the aioli, beat together the garlic and a pinch of salt to make a paste. Add the egg yolks and beat well. Gradually add the oils, drop by drop, beating vigorously, until the mayonnaise becomes creamy and smooth. Add the oils in a thin steady trickle and continue beating until the aioli is thick. Stir in the lemon juice and season with pepper. Set aside in a warm place.
4. Place the chicken on a preheated barbecue (grill) and cook for 25-30 minutes. Brush with the marinade and turn the portions to cook evenly. Remove and arrange on a serving plate.
5. Beat the water into the aioli and turn into a warmed serving bowl. Serve the chicken with the aioli, a green salad and lemon slices.
