Coriander Chicken

Recipe by Brian Holley

Quick and easy to make. This tastes wonderful, looks great. Yogurt gives it a creaminess and the almonds class. You can prepare the chicken the day before cooking.

This was lovely! I added a bit more water to make more 'sauce' which was totally delicious. I didn't have time to marinade overnight, and it was still great. We served with saffron rice and naan bread.
