You can prepare chicken grilled at home and get the wonderful  Chicken grill lababdaar which will exactly suit your tastebud if you  are an ardent fan of non vegetarian dish and a chicken lover. This spicy, tasty, tangy, tantalizing chicken delight will undoubtedly make you feel 'wow' once you get to experience it. For people having grill, microwave or even country oven at home, this dish will prove to be an awesome delight. Let's see the method of preparation of this wonderful chicken item.

Ingredients: (for a whole chicken)

Whole chicken ( big sized breast and leg pieces)
Yoghurt ( 300 gms.)
Coriander powder( 4-5 teaspoons)
Cumin powder( 4-5 teaspoons)
Red chilli powder( 4 teaspoons)
Turmeric powder( 4-5 teaspoons)
Ginger garlic paste (  teaspoons)
Garam masala powder ( 2 teaspoons)[ blend of black pepper, cinnamom, cardamom and clove ]
Salt as per taste.

Procedure:  The procedure in simple but time taking method. I have depicted schematically the stepwise process in a simple manner.

Step 1: Marinate the chicken pieces( breast and leg pieces) with youghurt/curd , cumin powder, coriander powder , turmeric powder, ginger- garlic paste, red chilli powder , garam masala and salt. Keep the chicken in marinated condition for about 6 hrs. It's advisable to marinate it overnight and keep in refrigertated condition in case you want to make it the following morning.  

Step 2: Put the marinated chicken pieces on the grill of your oven . Carefully place it side by side and apply oil on the pieces so that the chicken should not stick to each other.Apply oil over it  with the help of spoon or brush.

Step 3: Place the chicken in grill and put in the oven. Apply temperature 220 degress celsius and 20 minutes in grill mode. When one side is done turn on the other side with the help of tongs and apply the same conditions of the oven once more. 

Step 4: When it is done the chicken will get a golden  brownish color and a typical smoked smell will be emitted. You can grill vegetab;es like onions, capsicum, tomatoes at the same time in the oven and serve with the chicken. Apply a few drops of lime to make the taste tantalizing.

Serve it along with grilled veggies on a plate. Your guests will be spell bound. This will make a very good combination with drinks. So, no more hesitation and restaurant bills, enjoy your evenings by making grilled chicken at home.

  1. Hello.
    I'm visiting from the group We The Bloggers.

    I love chicken & this looks delicious. When my wife makes chicken, she always marinates it overnight...allows the meat to absorb all the herbs & spices.

    Excellent presentation...very good tool for those learning to cook or wanting to try something different!

    Thanks for sharing.
