Easy Chicken Roast with Garlic and Indian Spices

As I am in search for protein packed snacks and dinner options for kids ( esp the little one is fond of non-veg , to give company to dad I guess :-) ), this easy, peasy Chicken Roast invention in my kitchen is quite handy these days. There is no cooking effort with this recipe, yet turns out tasty and flavorful for kids. Usually, for this roast, I marinade the chicken in the morning, and leave in the fridge, after coming home from work, all I have to do is set the oven and bake accordingly. By the time kids bath and homework is done, yummy Dinner is Ready with no effort of cooking. WhoooOOoooOO! What a time saving recipe, right!!! Just sharing it here for you, Enjoy!

Garlicky Chicken Roast
Garlicky Chicken Roast
Chicken Breast - 4
Curd/Yogurt - 1/3 cup
salt - 2 tsp
black pepper - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder  1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Garlic - 4 to 5 cloves
Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp

1.Wash the chicken breast and drain the water and pat dry. Make slight slits on Chicken breast on two sides.
2. Mix the Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, salt and pepper and rub it on all the chicken breast and set aside for 15 min
3. Mean while mix the Yogurt, Red Chili Powder, Coriander Powder, Cumin Powder  and turmeric powder to make the marinade and set aside.
4. Grate the Garlic Cloves, and rub the chicken breast with this grated Garlic ( this is the secret for very nice flavor), close the lid  (to pack the garlic flavor) and set aside for 10 more minutes.
5. Then add these garlic infused chicken breast to marinade and leave in the fridge or outside for at least 30 minutes. (The more time is in marinade is more flavor, you can leave over night for best results). I don't have that much patience and never waited that long but still got the yummy result. :-)
6. Now bake these chicken breasts in the oven at 350F  for 30 to 35 minutes.
7. Let it cool and dig into this Flavor Packed Chicken Roast.

Serving Tips:
If you have to serve this to Guests, Garnish with cilantro and serve it with Red Onion Slices on the side, just before eating squeeze some lime juice on top.

Lemon Juice and Garlic are two secret ingredients in this recipe. Lemon Juice takes out the non-veg smell, while Garlic adds lot of nice flavor.

I am sending this recipe to Miz Helen's Full Plate Thursday.

Take care until Next Time
