Grilled Chicken (without micro oven)

Hello everybody! Hope you are having a great week.

I love grilled dishes of all types – grilled pomfret, grilled prawns, grilled assorted vegetables, grilled mushrooms, and of course the all time favorite grilled chicken. This dish can be served both as a snack and a starter.

I do not own a micro oven. It is better and easier without doubt to prepare grilled dishes using an oven. But today’s post is about we unfortunate souls who only have a non stick grill pan. The recipe is really simple and easy to prepare. A perfect dish to enjoy with your friends and family.

Lets get started !!


Preparation Time : (overnight)

Clean the chicken pieces well. With tissue papers dry them. With a sharp knife make 2 to 3 deep slits on each of the pieces. Place them in a big mixing bowl.

Add garlic paste, yogurt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder (or a tiny pinch of red food color if you prefer), salt, 1/2 tablespoon black pepper powder and 3 tablespoon lemon juice into the mixing bowl. Coat each chicken pieces uniformly.

Add the chicken pieces along with the whole marination spices into a large zip-lock bag. Keep it overnight in a refrigerator.

Cooking Time : 15 minutes

Ingredients :

  • Chicken – 2 pieces around 200g (I used chicken breast pieces with bone, you can use boneless pieces if you prefer)
  • Garlic paste – 2 tablespoon
  • Lemon Juice – 4 tablespoon (Use 3 tablespoon for marination, use rest before serving)
  • Yogurt – 2 tablespoon
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Black pepper powder – 1 tablespoon (Use 1/2 tablespoon for marination, use rest before serving)
  • Salt – as required
  • Rock salt – 1 teaspoon, powdered
  • Chaat masala – 1 teaspoon (You can also use dry mango powder)
  • Red chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1 tablespoon (You can use a pinch of red food color instead of this if you prefer)
  • Oil – 4 tablespoon (I used refined soybean oil)

Recipe :

  1.  Before you start cooking, take  out the overnight marinated chicken from fridge. Let it come to room temperature.
  2. Drizzle some oil into the marinated chicken.
  3. Take a non stick grill pan. Brush the whole pan with oil first. Now add the remaining oil into the pan and spread evenly. Let it heat up.
  4. Place the chicken pieces carefully on the grilled pan. Lower the flame to medium.
  5. Cover the grill pan with a lid and let the chicken cook.
  6. When one side has turned crisp, flip each chicken pieces so that the other side gets cooked. Cover with the lid again.
  7. Once both sides are uniformly done, remove the lid.
  8. Pour oil with a spatula on all sides, if your chicken pieces are thick flip and place all sides of the chicken pieces using a tong so that the chicken is well grilled on all sides.
  9. Once everything is done, turn the flame off.
  10. Place the grilled chicken pieces on a serving plate. Sprinkle remaining lemon juice, remaining black pepper powder, rock salt and chaat masala.

Serve Grilled chicken hot with onion rings and chopped coriander leaves salad.
