Coriander Lemon Chicken

Coriander Lemon Chicken created by kiwidutch

A mild Indian dish with lots of flavor, the original recipe from Madhur Jaffrey calls for chicken parts, if you use those buy a bit more chicken and adjust the cooking time. Found this recipe about 20 years ago and it has become one of our favorites.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat the oil and brown the chicken, you might have to do that in batches, remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add the garlic to the same oil, when that starts to brown lower the heat to medium and add the ginger/water mix, fry this for 1 minute Then add: coriander, chili, cayenne, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt, cook for another minute and mix well.
  • Return the chicken to the pan, with the accumulated juices, add the water and the lemon juice.
  • Stir, bring to the boil, and then cover and simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes, depending what chicken meat is used.
  • When cooked and you find the sauce too thin, uncover the pot and reduce the sauce by using some higher heat.

    All the family loved this recipe, will be cooking it again. I did not have turmeric so I substituted Garam Masala

    The flavor was good, but it was way too oily for us.

    Coriander is the ground seeds of the cilantro plant, so fressh coriander leaves = fresh cilantro. I didn't know this, hope it's helpful to others

    It was quite tasty and a nice change of pace from our other chicken dishes. I forgot to add the green chilis even after having chopped them up, but it was still good.
