Yummy, easy chicken recipe that can be grilled, baked in the oven or sautéed on the stove. So simple! The longer the meat marinates the better. I serve this with some rice that has a bit of turmeric stirred through, but you can use plain if you must. A must with my Cucumber Yogurt dip. Would also make a great satay-like appetizer using skewered chicken and the dip.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a ziploc to marinade. The longer this sits the better. I usually like to throw it in the bag in the morning to eat that evening.
  2. Of course, in a pinch, marinading is not necessary, but the chicken won't be nearly as tender.
  3. Grill, broil, bake or sauté the chicken till no longer pink inside, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Serve with turmeric scented rice and cucumber yogurt dip.

Sad to say my family thought the chicken was bland and boring. Not sure what I could do to pump it up enough that they would eat it again. To each his own...thanks for sharing.

This was spicy! We definitely liked this one. I didn't have any coriander and used the sweet paprika. Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag Game 2011.

Really good. We forgot the salt and pepper (oops) and so I think it would be even better had we included those. We ate the meat on a pitta with feta cheese (added a nice salty taste), and a yogurt/cucumber sauce. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!
