Spicy Baked Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ppaperdoll

From a Tesco's magazine in the mid 1990s. A great thing to have marinading in the fridge for when you come home from work. Then all you have to do is throw it in the oven! Add some cooked rice and hey presto, a yummy, spicy dinner! Preparation time does not include marinading time.

Yum! I made this for my dh & I recently, and we really enjoyed it! I did add some crushed garlic to the mix, and omitted the turmeric because we did not have any. I served it with rice, and salads. Thanks for sharing!!!
