1/2 teasp. ground pepper
1 onion cut in half
2 cups water

bring everything to a boil,  until salt and sugar are disolved. let it cool off completly. use a nonreactive pot or plastic container.

submerge the chicken in the brine and let it sit  overnight.

for the sauce you need:

1 ripe mango cut in small chunks
1 cup mango-chutney
2 garlic cloves minced
1 onion chopped
1 tablesp. oil
2 tablesp. lime juice
4 tomatos, peeled and cut in chunks
1/2 tablesp. tomato paste
1/2 teasp. salt
1/4 teasp. pepper
1/2 teasp. smooked paprika
1 tablesp dark brown sugar
1/4 garlic powder

a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon

heat the oil in a heavy pan, roast the onion and garlic for about 2 min. add all other ingredients, and cook the sauce  until you have a nice thick sauce about 15 min ( stir often). let the sauce cool off, and blend to make it a smooth barbecue sauce.

grill your chicken until its almost about done, brush the sauce on….keep on grilling untill its lightly crispy, brush on a  second layer and keep grilling some more until you have a nice sticky-crispy chicken … sprinkel with the coriander.

enjoy and good luck 🙂

ps: this sauce taste good on grilled fish and can last in the fridge up to 3 days!
