Indian Style Chicken

Indian style chicken

Since I discovered a little shop near my house selling Asian products, I have bought some spices and try to experiment with them, as I loved their taste from the very first time.

I tried to find a recipe at some of my Indian friends’ blogs or other friends’ blogs cooking Indian food but most of them seem to be Vegetarian so I didn’t find anything for me to cook the chicken breasts.

As always I like to experiment and if something comes out good I post about it. I’ve had some failures but don’t we all? That’s the fun of cooking. Making your own creations and waiting for your family to try them and express their opinion. And the verdict is: THEY LOVED IT.   If only you could smell it!

I prefer to buy whole chicken breasts which I fillet and then boil the skin and bones and make my own chicken broth in order to boil the rice in the broth.

This simple and flavourful grilled chicken recipe is fit for any diet.  The marinade tenderizes the meat to create a juicy end result your whole family will love.  

This recipe goes to the Fat Chefs or Skinny Gourmets? event hosted by Ben, of What’s Cooking and myself.

    Very thrifty use of the skin and bones!

    Would you put the chicken pieces on skewers to barbecue them?

    Nothing is wasted my Barbarian friend. I have a wire basket grill but you can use skewers if you like but use two otherwise you will have problem turning them.
