Baked Chicken

It is so easy to bake these chicken drumsticks with right amount of spice and seasonings - marination time is all that it takes........

What i usually do is - I mix them all and place them in the baking pan  and set aside .
All we need is :

  • 5- 6 chicken drumsticks

  • half a cup of yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons of chicken masala ( store bought)

  • 1/4 tsp kasoori methi

  • salt as appropriate

  • 3 teaspoons mustard oil

  • 2 small onions cut into cubes

  • 1 potato cubed or cut into wedges

  • Garlic whole

  • 2 tablespoons of barbeque sauce

  • Mix the chicken masala, salt , kasoori methi into the yogurt and add the mustard oil & the barbeque sauce.
    Slit the chicken drumstick, leaving the skin on is optional - I have tried both ways and it tastes better with the skin on. Coat the marinade on the drumsticks and toss the cubed potatoes in it.
    Line the baking pan with an Aluminum foil and place the drumsticks - fit in the potato cubes, place the cubed onions in the available space and do the same with garlic as shown in the pic.Remember , do not peel garlic.
    Cover the pan with another aluminum foil and set aside for an hour or two. Preheat oven and set it bake for about 45 minutes. Take it off the oven , remove the foil and bake again. At this point the garlic and potato would cook in the chicken juices.
    When the juices get absorbed, switch off the oven and switch on the grill for another 5 minutes or turn it off when the onions start browning.
    Serve hot with rotis or bread and garlic sauce.
