Spice Spice Baby!

I absolutely love spicy food! To satisfy my spicy taste buds I decided to grill some spicy chicken with spicy rice on the spicy side. The initial idea was to have a BBQ party on our roof top, the weather suddenly gave up on us (#winteriscoming). We decided to move the party indoors and I grilled the tandoori chicken in our oven instead!

Ingredients:

Marinade

  • Sunflower Oil – 2 Tbs
  • Salt and Pepper – To Taste

      Before adding chicken to the mixture keep aside 1/2 Tbs marinade for the spicy rice.

  • Cut the chicken and vegetables into bite size cubes

  • Let the chicken and vegetables marinade in the refrigerator for min 4 hours

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F
  2. Thread the chicken and the vegetables on the skewers. Discard the remaining marinade
  3. Place the chicken and vegetable skewers on a grilling rack and bake for 20 – 22 min until the chicken is cooked through
  4. If you don’t want to use a grilling rack just place the chicken and vegetable cubes on a greased baking sheet with or without the skewers. Leave a gap of 1 inch between the cubes. Turn the chicken over after 10 minutes
