For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Before we get to the BBQ Chicken Steaks… I have to mention that we didn’t cook these on any old BBQ, we cooked them on a Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ.

I can honestly say, I’ve never been keen on gas BBQ’s until this Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ came along.

Cooking on gas outside is just boring – you don’t get any of that smokiness associated with charcoal.

With the Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ you get the best of both worlds. You can use it either with or without charcoal.

Charcoal I hear you cry… Charcoal takes ages to light! Not with this BBQ!!

Simply load the tray with charcoal, then pop in the tray, light the gas for 15 minutes and et voila – your charcoal is lit and ready to grill

You can enjoy your BBQ Chicken Steaks in no time at all.

  1. Could you cook these in the oven please and if so, should I just put them in uncovered, or covered with foil? What temperature and time would you recommend? Looking for something to go with the orzo salad. ☺️ Thank you. x

  2. The recipe ingredients mentions 1/2 Lemon Juice only…. is that half a lemon, or 1/2 tbsp or 1-2? Could you please explain further. Thank you
