Boneless chicken marinated in a flavorful and aromatic marinade and is pan fried…deliciousness overloaded and very healthy…
I did facetime with my sister and niece in the afternoon and she told me that she had made green chicken for lunch. Perfect timing, as I was quite confused about what to make for my lunch. I didn’t think twice, went ahead and made green chicken.
Boneless chicken was marinated in a marinade that was made by pureeing: ginger, garlic, green chilies, whole cardamom, mint leaves, cilantro, curry leaves and whole peppercorns. This marinade is overloaded with flavor and aroma. I let the chicken rest for a few minutes and then cooked in a pan till chicken turned golden brown. This is a dry dish without any gravy, and I served this along with tomato rice. The green chicken tasted absolutely delicious, my Man and I finished it in no time. I’ll be making this quite often hereafter.
This makes a perfect appetizer or can be served along with rice, roti or can be made into wraps.
