Lately crafting has become a challenge with the situation at home. I love crafting and usual my weekday mornings are my getaway to do some crafts. With homeschooling become a new norm for a few weeks or months (honestly, I am clueless), I am sharing an instant recipe. Malai tikka coriander chutney chicken is mildly spiced and delicious. It’s a Pakistani recipe (Indian recipe), however, it’s not very spicy.

I love to cook for my family but at the same time I am more of a quick recipe girl. I’m always trying new ways to mix a few ingredients together and when I come up with one which gains appreciation at home, it’s goes in my recipe book. Especially these days I am trying to make food with limited ingredients or non-perishable ingredients. Therefore, I bring to you an simple marinated chicken that can be prepared in a few different ways.


Malai Tikka Coriander Chutney Chicken

This recipe requires chicken. It can be boneless or regular chicken cut into pieces. The main ingredients are yogurt, coriander and malai tikka masala. You can substitute coriander with parsley. Malai tikka masala is an indian/ pakistani spice mix used for BBQ. You can easily find this spice mix in an Indian grocery store or even the International Aisle of your neighborhood grocery store. The brand I am using is National, a brand from Pakistan. I recommend this one because the spice is mild and yet it tastes great. There are a few other optional ingredients that add to the flavor of this recipe.
