- Chicken breast (cut into bite-sized pieces or huge slabs, your choice).
- 1 cup plain yogurt (why she felt the need to specify it should be plain instead of, say, strawberry, I'm not sure).
- 1 tsp. grated ginger (thank goodness for modern grocery stores where they do the grating for ye).
- 1 tsp. cumin (best if you buy the seeds and then grind it yourself because then the spice is fresher).
- 1 tsp. coriander (same as above)
- 1 tsp. salt (or a pinch less, as you prefer)
- 1 tsp. pepper (or a pinch more, as you prefer)
- 1 tsp. turmeric (do you see a theme here for the portions of spices?)
- 1/4 cup cooking oil (again, did she think I would use motor oil?)
- 1 minced onion ("medium," she says. heh. we're lucky she didn't say, "just the right amount of onion."
- Mix the yogurt, oil, spices, and onion in a bowl to tenderize the chicken
- Place the chicken into the mixture and, if in slab form, stab it a bit with a fork to tenderize it some more. (Yaz, I'm looking in your direction)
- Marinate (yay! she got it right! it's marinate, not marinade) for 2 hours or over night
- Bake uncovered in baking pan at 350 degress for 45 minutes.
- Garnish with cilantro, as you please
- Call me when it's ready. I'll even bring along my own fork.
