SIZZLING LEMON CHICKEN

It's so very cold out here, so all I look for these days are quick winter-warming foods much like this Chicken recipe, which is  is a delight in all aspects and both me and my husband enjoy it very much,it has a lovely ginger-garlic infused, yogurt based masala and the fresh tang of lemons, an excellent snack with drinks.

The key to really making delicious food is the freshness of ingredients,so make sure that you get the best and freshest possible always.

  • Fresh chicken- 1 kg (small pieces)
  • Yogurt/fresh thick curd- 2 cups
  • Ginger-garlic paste-1 tsp
  • Cinnamon- few sticks
  • Cloves-2-3
  • Butter- 2 tbsp.
  • Fresh cilantro/coriander- a generous fistful
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon juice-2 tbsp
Method-
