Assorted Chicken

Frozen Kenchic chicken : assorted chciken pack 1kg
Kenchic assorted chicken 8-10 pieces(1 to 1.5kg)
tsp ginger paste
cup yogurt
tbsp veg oil
tsp turmeric powder
tsp red chili powder
Juice of 1 lemon
tsp garlic paste
tbsp tomato paste/puree
cup mayonnaise
tsp salt
tsp black pepper powder
tbsp dried parsley or a handful of very finely minced fresh parsley or coriander


  1. Clean and dry the chicken pieces. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth and creamy, then add the chicken and mix well. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least for a couple of hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the chicken pieces in a glass baking dish cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then turn the pieces over, cover again and bake for another 30 minutes.
  3. Finally, remove the foil, turn the pieces one last time and broil the chicken under the grill for about 5 minutes for a nice color. For added flavor, you can smoke the cooked chicken by lighting a small coal, placing it on a piece of foil and putting it in the middle of the chicken dish.
  4. Drip some oil over the coal and when it begins smoking, cover the dish and allow the smoke to infuse into the chicken for about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Serve on a platter with your favorite combination of chips/ rice/mashed potatoes/naan, fresh salad and a dip of your choice.
