directions

  • Make gashes in the chicken flesh at several places.
  • Mix the lime or lemon juice, honey, yogurt, seasoning, cumin powder, turmeric and ginger-garlic mince and half the mint.
  • Marinade the chicken with this paste for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Cook the chicken under a moderately hot grill until thoroughly cooked and golden brown, turn the chicken occasionally during the cooking.
  • Sprinkle with remaining mint, serve with potatoes and tomato salad.
  • Note: I add and subtract ingredients for a slight change in flavour.
  • I may use the garlic alone or no garlic, ginger, turmeric at all, depending on my mood.

    The marinade for this recipe is so tasty. I loved the fresh mint flavor - that really shone though in the finished dish. I used all of the optional ingredients too, which I feel added that something special to the recipe, especially the ginger. It took me a little longer to cook - about 45 minutes.

    Yum! Beautiful blend of flavors (I used all the optional ingredients) and the marinade left the chicken super moist and tender. Rather than grilling I cooked in an oven on a rack and served with a mixed salad.

    I made this with lamb cutlets instead of chicken and the marinade was really very tasty! I'll definitely be making it again.

    YUM! I think I might switch to using chicken thighs as my primary meat for everything (I currently use chicken breasts). This was delicious, I used all of the optional items in the recipe, but I think I used around 1/8 teaspoon of tumeric instead of ¼ teaspoon. On the Lemon/Lime juice I chose Lime and think it tastes better than Lemon would have after I did it. I marinated this for slightly over an hour. DB loved this and so did I. I usually use tongs to turn things over on the BBQ but it seems like most things marinated in yogurt stick to the grill and this was no exception, be sure to have a decent spatula to turn these with.

    The fresh mint differentiated this recipe from all others. We loved it.
