DIRECTIONS

  • Using a coffee grinder or pestle and mortar, grind together the cinnamon, bay leaf, cloves, peppercorns and cardamom. Mix with the lemon juice, chili powder and cumin seeds.
  • Slash the chicken breasts with a sharp knife. Smear them with the spice mixture, rubbing it well into the slashes. Sprinkle with salt and leave to stand for 1 hour.
  • Mix together the ginger, garlic and half the onion. Add to the yoghurt. Spread the mixture over the chicken pieces. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 5 hours or overnight.
  • Remove from the fridge and allow chicken to come to room temperature.
  • Grill the chicken for about 20-30 minutes, basting frequently with the marinade and turning halfway through the cooking time.
  • Transfer to a warm serving dish. Garnish with lemon slices and remaining onion.
  • Serve with wild rice.
