Tips To Make The Best Recipe

Chicken Breast can also be used. Make a slash on the chicken that helps to infuse the flavors and also chicken breast tends to cook faster.

Marinade the chicken with spices, seasoning, herbs, and lemon for a minimum of 30 minutes or refrigerate overnight to get the juicy grilled chicken.

Grill the chicken, with light basting as required. The basting technique is a must retain the moisture in the chicken. 

If you are not a fan of too many spices, stick to pepper and salt, lemon juice, and some herbs it works well too.

I urge you to use the freshly ground ginger garlic paste to get the most authentic flavors!
