Instructions

  • Remove the skin of the chicken and make deep gashes in it
  • Now marinate the chicken with all the ingredients. Make sure to massage the chicken with the spices well. Rub the spices evenly.
  • Let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours preferably overnight
  • In a non stick pan, heat some oil. Lay the chicken in the pan ensuring there is enough space between each drumstick. If the pan is overcrowded the chicken will steam. Do it in batches if needed.
  • Sear each side on high for 3 minutes until browned. Now cover and cook for another 10-12 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked
    Sear each side of the chicken legs on high for 3 minutes until browned.
  • Serve immediately on a bed of tomato onion salad garnished with lemon.
