Spicy Thai Chicken

 Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

If you are having chicken and want it to be a little different, then this is the recipe for you. It uses lighter ingredients than the usual spicy chicken that I am used to, and therefore shows that the simplest of ingredients can create such tasty food.

 A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Garlic
2. Green Chillies
3. Salt and Pepper
4. Sugar
5. Fish Sauce
6. Chilli Sauce
7. Chicken Thighs

Bismillah, let's start!

 Take 4 peeled garlic cloves.

 Crush the garlic and place into a mixing bowl.

Next, take 3 green chillies

Slice the green chillies and add to the garlic.

 Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

 Add 1 teaspoon of sugar.

 And, 1 tablespoon of fish sauce.

 And finally, 2 tablespoons of chilli sauce.

 Stir everything together to combine.

Take 4 chicken thighs, and mix into the marinade. Leave the chicken overnight in the fridge.

 Take a large pan, and a few tablespoons of oil. When heated, add the chicken thighs and brown on both sides. Then cover, for 45 minutes, or until cooked.

 Serve while still hot!

My Mums Roast Chicken

 Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

My mum has many recipes for roast chicken, but this is one of her most simple and one of my favourites. Just marinade the chicken and leave overnight, and then roast and let the oven do the work, and you'll have amazing chicken.

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Yoghurt

2. Lemon Juice
3. Sunflower Oil
4. Tandoori Masala
5. Salt
6. Red Chilli Powder
7. Dried Fenugreek Leaves (Dried Methi)
8. Curry Powder
9. Chicken

Bismillah, let's start!

In a large bowl, place 3 tablespoons of natural yoghurt.

Add 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil.

And, two tablespoons of lemon juice.

Next, add 3 tablespoons of tandoori masala.

And, 1 tablespoon of salt.

And, 1 tablespoon of crushed red chillies.

And, 1 tablespoon of dried fenugreek leaves (dried methi).

And, 2 tablespoons of curry powder.

 Stir well to combine, and you have your marinade.

 Take 6 pieces of chicken, and mix well to coat. You can use any kind of chicken.
Marinade for a few hours, or for best results, overnight.

 Place in an ovenproof tray and cover with foil.

  Bake in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 6 for 1 hour. Then, uncover and drain out the juices. (Keep the juices because they make an excellent gravy or dipping sauce). Place back in the oven for a further 10 minutes.

Serve whilst hot and with my real mashed potatoes!
