Cuisine: American
  • 1 whole chicken cut into pieces or 4-5 leg (thigh and drumstick) pieces
  • 2 tablespoons pink peppercorns
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, whole
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) white wine vinegar
  1. Place half of the peppercorns and the remaining ingredients except the chicken into a blender.
  2. Blend on a medium setting until smooth. Set marinade aside.
  3. Place the chicken and the second half of the peppercorns into a large bowl. Pour the marinade over the top of the chicken and using your hands or a spoon, mix the chicken around in the marinade until each piece is coated on all sides.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator. Allow the chicken to marinate for 4-8 hours, or preferable overnight.
  5. When the chicken is done marinating, place it on a rack inside of a foil lined pan.
  6. Put the entire pan in a 200 degree pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the juices of the chicken run clear.
  7. Serve with rice, salad, or one of your favorite side sides.
