Step 1
Cut the chicken thighs into three or four bites size pieces and place in a mixing bowl.

Add all the herbs and spices, salt & pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil, mix well, cover with cling film and marinate in the fridge for three hours minimum. Ideally 24 hours.

Step 3
If barbecuing, brush the hot grill with vegetable oil and cook approx 3-5 minutes each side.

Step 4
If baking, rub some oil on your bell peppers (capsicums) and place in a sheet pan in a preheated hot oven and bake for 20 min at 440°F – 230°C.

Step 5
Once cooked there should be some black on them, cover with a cloth and leave to rest until cool.

Once cool enough to handle, remove stalks with seeds and peel off the blistered skin. Slice into strips.

Step 7
Add the chicken to a baking dish along with the bell pepper strips. Mix well and bake for 30 min at 350°F – 180°C. Serve immediately.
