Spicy Grilled Chicken Breast Recipe

Who hates a perfect grilled chicken. Specially the ones with the lovely chat grill marks on them. I love those so much, the grill marks will make them so appetizing and gives a lot more flavour..

The key to get the perfect grill marks is so easy. The first thing you have to remember is

1)The grill pan has to be super hot when you put the chicken in.
2)Dont oil the grill pan, instead oil the chicken.
3)Dont keep on flipping the chicken, just keep them on one side for 5 mins or so, then flip it. If you keep on flipping them, then they wont get the char marks.

I used a simple spicy yogurt based marination, and it is spicy, tangy and very flavourful. I will share many more variations soon.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 10 to 12 mins
Serves: 2


Boneless Chicken Breast - 2

For Marination:
Chilli Flakes - 1 tsp
Kashmiri Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1.5 tsp
Pepper Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder -  1 tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tblspn
Lemon Juice - 1.5 tblspn
Oil - 2 tblspn
Yogurt / Curd - 3 tblspn


Place chicken brease between two sheets of plastic wrap. Use a rolling pin to bash them well this even out the chicken breast, so it will cook evenly.

Mix all the ingredients given for marination together. Coat the chicken in this marination.

Heat a grill pan on medium high heat.

Now put the chicken in the hot pan, dont touch it for 5 mins, this will help the chicken to get a good char marks.

Now flip over and cook for another 5 mins.

Now flip over and cook for a min or so.

Now remove the chicken and let it rest a bit.

Remove it and serve with some mayo and lettuce.

First take couple of boneless skinless chicken breast

cover them with plastic wrap

use a rolling pin to bash them, this will flatten them out
 and it will cook evenly.

now it is much more even, so it cooks quickly

Now lets make the marinate..I have salt, sugar, pepper 
powder and red chilli flakes

add in ginger and garlic paste

add in cumin powder

add in lemon juice

add in oil

spoon in some thick yogurt

add in chilli powder

mix well..marinate is done
now place the chicken in the marinate

coat it on both sides

place it over a preheated grill pan, cook this for
5 mins on one side..Dont touch them on that time,
this will give you the perfect grill marks.

flip over and cook for another 5 mins or so

flip over and cook till done..Rest this for few mins and serve

Serve with mayo

Enjoy hot..
