Many of my viewers have been asking for chicken recipes..Its been a while since I posted chicken recipes..So here I am with a awesome simple chicken dish that taste heavenly..I made this last week  for dinner and we had it with some Butter Naan, I had a recipe for Wheat Naan in my blog, you can try that too.. ..My sisters loved it so much and they told me to make it again..This can be made in a barbeque or grill, since I don’t own one..My little OTG oven helped me..

So I hope you will try it and let me know the results..

Chicken looks very spicy and very tempting. One small suggestion for you. i think you have used the ginger with its skin. i read in an article we should not use fresh ginger with its skin. it is sometimes poisonous. so just scrap the skin of ginger and use it.

Hi aarthi. .I ve recently started following you...I must say that you make complex recipes also look very simple...and I love the pictorials. .I wanted to ask you that how long do we have to bake chicken legs if I use a gas oven?

Shany Abraham said... Best Blogger Tips

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Tushita Juyal Bahuguna I would suggest you to cook chicken for around 25 mins on each side

ramya said... Best Blogger Tips

Hey arthi your recipes are quite easy and lovely .. i am new to non-veg dept and have purchased an otg couple o days ago .. i cooked the grilled chicken following the instructions (i used pieces of chicken breast though) but my chicken was chewy :( please will be waiting for ur reply :)thanku

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@ramyaChicken breast tends to get chewy and touch when cooked for too long. Since it gets cooked quicker, you have to reduce the cooking time while you cook chicken breast
