Did this for two sets of guests this week and it was a complete success. Luckily, I spiced more chicken than I needed, so there's some for us later on. I couldn't find cilantro, so I used some crushed coriander seeds. The flavour was delicious and the chicken incredibly tender. I used both breast and thigh pieces, both were excellent, but the thighs really did have a better flavour. Thanks Mirj for posting it.
I didn't have parsley and I cut the cayenne a little for the kids. I put it together in the morning, marinated in the fridge all day. I also basically cut my chicken breasts down to about a tenderloin size, so moist and flavorful. I baked them at 350 until they were done, perhaps a half hour or so? My husband didn't know what he was eating but sure liked it a lot! Made with Carrot Souffle & Easy Garlic Rice. Thanks for sharing, this one will be in the rotation.
This is a very flavorful chicken recipe. I made this for DH and I, we served it with Cheesy Rice and Broccoli . Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe.
I made this for my family tonight and everyone loved it! I used boneless chicken thighs, marinated less than 1hr. I also opted for whole cumin seeds which I roasted in the oven until lightly browned, then ground using a coffee grinder (that I use only for spices). I also added a little bit more salt. It was juicy, tender, so tasty and just plain awesome! This one is a keeper! Thanks so much for posting.
Wow! This was so delicious....and pretty easy, too. All of my kids and my husband liked it. That is hard to do. I am not usually a fan of chicken, but it is good for you so I try to choke it down. That was not the case with this. The taste was amamzing! We had it with grilled zucchini and brown rice. Perfect!! Thanks for the recipe! It will become a regular around our house.
Made this chicken for Christmas dinner and it was FABULOUS! I got tons of compliments from everyone about the seasoning. I let the chicken marinade for over an hour and the flavor really soaked into the chicken breasts. Wasn't too dry, salty, or anything, it was just perfect! We grilled it and served it with mashed potatoes, some zucchini ribbons, and sauteed mushrooms. Thank you!
Absolutely amazing recipe!! Chicken came out moist and full of flavor. The only thing we omitted was the turmeric because I thought I had some and then of course found out I didn't. Now a staple on our menu and something I always put together for company. Never fails to please.
Best chicken I ever made, and I had 3 chicken restaurants for over 10 years.
In the words of my boyfriend, "this is the best chicken ever!" We used this recipe on the thin sliced chicken breasts we had in the freezer and it was perfectly cooked in about 6 minutes on the grill. We skipped the cayenne because my boyfriend doesn't like hot spices and just about everything else needed for this recipe we already had in the spice cabinet or in the garden (perfect for a couple who hates the grocery store!) This recipe has definitely become one of our favorites and will use it again!
