After all the ravings about Jameela Sayed’s Kikis Chicken, it would’ve been totally remiss of me not to try it out for myself. Well, true to form it was excellent. I also made Garlic Soya Butter Roasted Mushrooms which is featured with the chicken.
1 kg chicken fillet or chicken pieces
2 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli paste
2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp dhania-jeera powder
2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp red crushed chillies
1/2 black pepper
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp tomato sauce
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/4 cup olive oil
60 g slice butter
Make a paste with the above ingredients besides butter and marinate chicken for half an hour.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Place chicken on baking sheet and cover with foil.
Reserving excess marinade.
Bake in oven 180C for 40 min on the bottom shelf.
Heat excess marinade with the 60 gr butter
Remove foil and brush melted butter and marinade mixture over chicken and place rack on centre shelf.
Change heat setting to grill and grill for five minutes on both sides basting in between.
