Since I discovered a little shop near my house selling Asian products, I have bought some spices and try to experiment with them, as I loved their taste from the very first time.

I tried to find a recipe at some of my Indian friends’ blogs or other friends’ blogs cooking Indian food but most of them seem to be Vegetarian so I didn’t find anything for me to cook the chicken breasts.

As always I like to experiment and if something comes out good I post about it. I’ve had some failures but don’t we all? That’s the fun of cooking. Making your own creations and waiting for your family to try them and express their opinion. And the verdict is: THEY LOVED IT. If only you could smell it.

This is a recipe fit for any diet. So it goes to the Fat Chefs or Skinny Gourmets? event hosted by Ben, of What’s Cooking and myself.

You still have lots of time to submit your recipes.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Grilling time: 20 -30 minutes

Ingredients for 5

  • 4 chicken breasts (from 2 chickens)
  • 1 tablespoon garam massala
  • ½ tablespoon ground ginger
  • ½ tablespoon garlic powder
  • ½ tablespoon cumin powder
  • ½ tablespoon turmeric
  • ½ tablespoon chilli flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 spoonfuls of lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce


  1. I prefer to buy whole chicken breasts which I fillet and then boil the skin and bones and make my own chicken broth in order to boil the rice.Cut chicken breasts in smaller pieces and place in a bowl, together with all ingredients and let them marinate for 2 – 3 hours or even more. I prepared it early in the morning.
  2. You can either grill, barbecue or roast until golden brown. When grilling, I used the marinade to baste the chicken each time I turned it over.
  3. I served it with basmati rice, steamed vegetables and lime wedges. If it is difficult to find line you can use lemon.

    Very thrifty use of the skin and bones!

    Would you put the chicken pieces on skewers to barbecue them?

  2. Ivy says:

    Nothing is wasted my Barbarian friend. I have a wire basket grill but you can use skewers if you like but use two otherwise you will have problem turning them.
