60 ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
50ml Lime juice
Pinch of salt

2 Red chillies, sliced
Method Chicken Tenders
Preheat oven to 180c. Fill deep fat fryer with vegetable oil and set the temperature to 180c.
Mix the baking powder, plain flour, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano and salt and pepper altogether in a bowl.
Toss the chicken tenders into the mixture until coated thoroughly.
Gently shake off any excess mixture before deep frying until golden brown.
When golden brown place chicken tenders on a lined baking tray and cook in the oven for a further 10 minutes.
Method The Glenlivet BBQ Sauce
Bring all of the ingredients to the boil over a medium heat whilst whisking. Reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes and then remove from the heat. Add and mix in The Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve.
Method Charred Corn Salad
Drain the sweetcorn and spread evenly onto a tray lined with kitchen roll to remove any excess water. Heat a pan with 10ml of the extra virgin olive oil. When hot add the corn and char the kernels. Place on a tray and allow to cool. When cool mix in the remaining ingredients.
To Plate Up
Toss the chicken tenders in the BBQ sauce so that they are coated thoroughly. Add to the plate the charred corn salad. Sprinkle the red chillies and spring onions over the chicken tenders.
If using a BBQ – opt for using 6 corn on the cobs instead of the tinned sweetcorn. Grill on the BBQ and then cut the corn kernels off of the cob.
The Caribbean Fire
Made with our very own small batch hot sauce, this fiery cocktail packs summer vibes. A tropical take on a classic Bloody Mary, why not?
