I've had this clipped from a Tesco in store magazine for over 10 years. Finally I am recording it so that I don't lose it! Part of an Indian menu from Madhur Jaffrey.

We really enjoyed this flavourful chicken. Smelled fabulous as it cooked too. We like our chicken a bit crunchier so turned one extra time and baked about 20 minutes longer. Will definitely be making again. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
