Baked Green Chutney Chicken

Green chutney is an excellent combination with tandoori chicken, you can find its recipe below. You will never have cravings for the restaurant tandoori chicken if you taste this one.

I try not to deep chicken, and baking is the best option. In baking the chicken remain juicy and absorbs the flavors. Baking is also hassle free, place the chicken in the oven and after 10 mins just check and turn them, that all. Baking also requires hardly any oil. The chicken once baked is oil free and healthy. Prepare and enjoy!!

6 Chicken Drumsticks – skinless 

For the green chutney

Small bunch of fresh coriander
Small bunch of fresh mint
2 Teaspoons Ginger-garlic paste
3 - 4 Green chillies - chopped
1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
2 Tablespoons Lemon, juice
1 Teaspoon Salt
200 Grams Thick Yogurt
2 Tablespoon Oil - I use Mustard Oil


Mix all the ingredients blend to make the chutney. Keep aside.

Wash the chicken drumsticks. Pat dry with a paper towel. Make 2 – 3 deep slits on the fleshy part of the chicken so that the marinade can penetrate inside the flesh. Rub the marinade all over the chicken drumsticks one by one. Remember to rub the marinade inside the slits. Put them in the refrigerator for at least 8 hrs or overnight.

Preheat oven at 180 degress.. Arrange the chicken drumsticks on the baking pan. Brush the chicken with oil or pour little oil on them ( this step is optional). Place the tray in the center rack of the oven. Bake it for about 12 – 15 minutes. Take out the tray carefully using your oven mitts. Turn them over and brush/pour a little oil on the chicken pieces (this is optional). Return the tray to the oven. Bake for another 10 – 12 minutes. 

When done just turn on the broiler and let the chicken remain in for a additional 2 minutes.  Switch off the oven and let it stand for 3 minutes more.  Take out the tray when the drumsticks are done. Be careful not to burn the chicken pieces. (The juices that surrounds the chicken would be burnt and the skin of the chicken pieces might be stuck to the foil when you take it out.) Slowly take out the drumsticks after 2 minutes using a tong.   Serve and En.. joy...........
