SIMPLE & EASY HOMEMADE DRY CHICKEN

Hey Everyone! A Couple of you did ask me to share some more healthy eating recipes, so this is what I cooked some days back. I love this dry chicken recipe of mine, its perfect for dinner along with some salad. It’s not fried and has very less oil in it, making it a healthy meal. Now if your someone who is on a strict diet I would suggest you go in for chicken breast, but I feel the thighs are more tender and I enjoy them more.   Ingredients: 6 to 7 chicken thighs ( you can use breast as well) 1 tsp olive oil 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp chilli powder 1 tsp paprika powder/ chilli flakes 1 tbsp onion powder 1 tsp lime juice Dark soy sauce (optional) salt as per taste Canola Spray Oil     Method:  Step 1. clean and wash you chicken well , then makes some slits on it. This helps in the marination. Step 2. Marinate your chicken with all of the above ingredients for 2 hours. Step 3. Take your non stick pan add in your olive oil or spray oil, then add in your chicken and cook on a high flame for 5 mins. (you will notice some water leave out) Step 4. Then cook the chicken on really low flame and cover with a lid…cook for 15 min and then turn the side and then cook for another 15 mins. Step 5. After 30 mins you will then notice a lot of water has left from the chicken, then change the flame back on to high and dry up all the remaining water while your chicken cooks in it as well.   Once its all dried up, take it off the gas and serve it with your choice of salad. P.S :  This recipe can be used for fish or prawns as well. Do let me know in the comment box what you though of this and if you ever give it a try to do share the pics.
