Chicken In Yoghurt

I love to try different recipes to satisfy my family's taste buds.I love trying various methods of cooking chicken.Very often I cook chicken with fresh tomatoes and tomato paste .Recently I thought I will make something new with the chicken.Instead of cooking the chicken on the stove, I actually cooked it in the oven.I made this dish in the spur of the moment, I actually didnt have a recipe or didn't know what to expect once done.Nevertheless it was scrumptiously delicious..

Here's how the recipe was created

Add 2 teaspoons of chilly powder,curry powder,turmeric,a few crushed garlic,ginger,salt and mix them well with a cup of yoghurt.Set aside.

Place 10-12 chicken pieces ( or desired amount)in a baking tray.Pour the above yoghurt mixture over the chicken and let it marinade for 1/2 hour .Cover the tray with an aluminium foil and bake it for 20 minutes.Check for salt.Add some lemon juice and cook for a further 20 minutes.Add 1/4 cup  water if you want some gravy. Serve with steaming rice and a green salad.

  1. cool! I love yoghurt and I love turmeric, I bet this will taste better than the usual chicken curry because of the yogurt.
