Anise seed is one of my favourite seasonings for chicken.  

In our home it’s mandatory in homemade Chicken noodle soup and
 roast chicken is just not the same without it.
I had taken a few chicken thighs out for supper the other day and decided to add lemon
to the anise seed for a new flavour twist on the barbecue. 
  • 4 chicken thighs, bone in
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon flavoured pepper (like Montreal steak spice)
  • 1 teaspoon anise seed
  1. Wash chicken thighs and blot dry with paper towel.
  2. Mix remaining ingredients.
  3. Brush on all sides of chicken.
  4. Place over medium heat on barbecue.  Grill until meat is cooked through.
