Meanwhile, mix sauce ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Remove from heat.
Transfer chicken to the braai, brush with basting sauce and cook over medium-hot coals for 5 to 10 minutes, turn and brush again.
Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, or until juices run clear when pierced with a skewer or sharp knife.
Garnish with lime zest.
