• Blitz the onion and the rest of the ingredients into a smooth paste and pour into a jar. The marinade can be kept in the fridge for a few days.

• Rub the chicken with half the marinade, spreading some under the skin where possible. Wrap the chicken in foil and put it in the fridge, overnight if possible.

• Prepare the coals and put the foil parcel on a cool part of the grid, or use a kettle braai. Braai the chicken slowly for 40 minutes, turning frequently.

• Remove from the braai and add more coals. Take the chicken out of the foil and braai over hot coals until the skin starts to brown and the chicken is cooked.

• Put the chicken on a serving dish and pour the remaining marinade over it Cover with foil and rest for 10 minutes before carving.
