Indian-Inspired Chicken With Raita

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

I have not tried this dish yet; however, the yogurt-spice combination sounds really delicious along with the raita. Prep time does not include marinating time.

This was my sort of recipe-lots of flavour for very little effort. I skinned some chicken drumsticks then cut a few slashes in them to allow the yoghurt/spice mix to penetrate as I only had 5 hours marination time. I increased the red chilli powder to a teaspoon and the cumin to a teaspoon too as we do like things a bit spicier. The raita really went well with the drumsticks and made for a yummy dinner thanks Nancy.
