For chicken that is crispy on the outside, yet falling off the bone when u take a bite… follow these simple techniques and I promise…it will even beat the original! This chicken tastes so good…my hubby calls it world’s best chicken!
Idea: Mom-in-law

You can leave it a little finger licking saucy…

Or cook till completely dry…your pick!

Method:
You can take either full chicken cut into medium size pieces or like me only chicken drumsticks.
image
Clean, wash, drain and pat dry. If you are using drumsticks, cut deep slits using a sharp knife.
image
Marinate the chicken with Tandoori masala, ginger garlic paste and a little dahi. You can use…
Recipe for homemade tandoori masala or even use store bought.
image
Also add salt to taste and a generous amount of lemon juice.
image
Cover with plastic wrap and marinade for atleast 1 hour.
image
Now take out chicken from the marinade shaking off any excess. Reserve the excess marinade.
Heat a little oil and sear chicken drumsticks in med high heat.
image
Flip the chicken around to ensure it is evenly browned from all sides.
image
Cook the chicken in small batches…Do not over crowd to ensure a good sear.
image
After each batch, transfer seared chicken to a bowl, wipe out pan
image
Add a light drizzle of oil and proceed with the next batch.
image
Once the last batch of chicken is seared, transfer all the pieces back to the pan
image
add the reserved marinade to the chicken
image
Mix to evenly coat the pieces.
image
Cover chicken with a well fitting lid. Cook for about 25 minutes or till tender.
image
Remove lid and cook on medium high to reduce juices.
image
Now you can cook it to the point when it has a sauce sticking to it….I like it this way!
image
Or make it completely dry…like my kids want it! 🙂
image
Serve with lachcha pyaz and a sprinkle of chat masala!
image
I love to eat it with crusty bread….yum yum!
