This is a very simple chicken dish which I made with whatever ingredients I had in the fridge and pantry. I was just trying it out and there was no guarantee that it will be good. Kept my fingers crossed that it'll be at least edible! Yup, it turned out to be 'not too bad'. That was the verdict given by my other half who was the guinea pig as well!.
An alternative is to place these marinated chicken pieces onto an alluminium foil lined baking tray and bake in the oven, but I chose to just wok it up!
I served this yoghurt chicken with freshly cut cucumbers and home-made Chapati! You can check out my Chapati post 'here'.
- 650 gm chicken (1/2 chicken, cut and skin removed)
- 1 Tsp each of : salt, garam masala and sugar
- 2 Tsp chilli powder
- 1/2 Tsp coriander powder
- 3 pips garlic, chopped
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- 150 ml plain yoghurt
Marinate the chicken pieces with the above ingredients for a few hours, preferably overnight. Next, dump everything into the wok and simmer under medium low heat till the chicken is thoroughly cooked through, about 45 min. Dish up and serve, with rice, bread or whatever you fancy.
