GARLICKY SPREAD

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 to 4 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat barbecue. Mix lemon peel with curry, cumin and salt. Rub all over chicken.
  • Lightly brush one side of chicken with Garlicky Spread and place coated-side down on barbecue. Grill for 8 minutes. Brush top with Garlicky Spread and turn. Brush again. Grill for 6 to 8 more minutes.
  • For Garlicky Spread: Stir butter with olive or other vegetable oil, minced garlic cloves and parsley until blended.

It also freezes well.
