Our answer

Nigella's Tequila And Lime Chicken (from SIMPLY NIGELLA) marinates chicken pieces in a margarita-style mixture. The marinade helps to flavour and tenderise the chicken, which is then cooked in a hot oven.

We suspect that the recipe could be used for chicken on a barbecue but you will need to make sure that the chicken is cooked through thoroughly. If you are using a coal barbecue then build an indirect heat area for slower cooking rather than directly over an open flame and on a gas barbecue using a lower heat. It may also help to close the lid on the barbecue to make it more like an oven. The chicken is cooked through when the juices from the chicken run clear or, if you use an instant read or probe thermometer, when the internal temperature reaches 74°C/165°F.
