garlic chicken in 20 minutes
This garlic chicken makes a perfect starter or a side to make a meal exotic. My new found trick to tenderize the chicken which I learnt from my chicken majestic, works well for this recipe too. I soaked the chicken strips overnight in buttermilk along with salt and pepper. I was surprised at this soft, tasty and tender chicken, all without deep frying and it is egg free too. I am yet to try baking this. This is not any restaurant style chicken dish but it tastes awesome and is ideal for a home preparation. This Indian garlic chicken can be prepared in just 20 mins excluding the marinating time.
To make the spice paste, I just followed my hyderabadi paneer 65 recipe. You can tweak it a bit to suit your taste. For me this turns out perfect.
Note for those who cannot blend and make a paste: mix red chili powder, chopped and crushed garlic, vinegar, sugar, salt and 1 tbsp. water. Use this paste for marinating.
