Remove the chicken from the marinade, season and cook on a hot barbecue for 20 to 25 minutes with the lid on, turning once until blackened and piping hot all the way through. You can also cook them in the oven for 20 minutes at 200C, 180C fan, 400F, gas 6.
To make the salsa, mix all the salsa ingredients together and season well. Serve the chicken with the salsa, with extra lemon wedges on the side.
