Mix the marinate ingredients together. Now add in chopped chicken pieces and mix well.
Let this marinate in the fridge over night.
Preheat the oven to the highest temperature. Mine went to 250°C(500°F).
Take the chicken out of the fridge before 30 mins so that it comes to room temperature and cooks evenly.
Arrange it in a foil lined baking tray.
Place the tray in the top rack and grill the chicken for 10 mins.
When 10 mins is over take the chicken out and apply the rest of the marinate over this and place it back in the oven for 10 mins.
Now mix lemon juice, oil, chat masala powder together for basing the chicken.
Now take the tray out. Turn the chicken over and base it with the lemon liquid and place it back in the oven for 5 more mins.
Cook the chicken for 5 mins until the chicken is cooked and gets a little charred around the edges.
Remove this and serve hot.
