A recipe I like to make at least once a month. We love chicken, mint and curd so this recipe is a fave. I have adapted it from a recipe I found on the net.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make gashes in the chicken flesh at several places.
  2. Mix the lime or lemon juice, honey, yogurt, seasoning, cumin powder, turmeric and ginger-garlic mince and half the mint.
  3. Marinade the chicken with this paste for 30 minutes to an hour.
  4. Cook the chicken under a moderately hot grill until thoroughly cooked and golden brown, turn the chicken occasionally during the cooking.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining mint, serve with potatoes and tomato salad.
  6. Note: I add and subtract ingredients for a slight change in flavour.
  7. I may use the garlic alone or no garlic, ginger, turmeric at all, depending on my mood.

The marinade for this recipe is so tasty. I loved the fresh mint flavor - that really shone though in the finished dish. I used all of the optional ingredients too, which I feel added that something special to the recipe, especially the ginger. It took me a little longer to cook - about 45 minutes.

Yum! Beautiful blend of flavors (I used all the optional ingredients) and the marinade left the chicken super moist and tender. Rather than grilling I cooked in an oven on a rack and served with a mixed salad.

I made this with lamb cutlets instead of chicken and the marinade was really very tasty! I'll definitely be making it again.
