spiced chicken fillets

Meals for the homeless – pan fried spiced chicken

Posted on Updated on

I recently discovered a butcher that offers chicken drumstick fillets at $6/kg. It is probably the cheapest boneless and lean protein that I could find in this part of Sydney.  Last week, I made some Indian inspired spiced chicken pieces.

I first cut the chicken drumstick fillets into chunky pieces. Then I marinated the pieces with garlic and ginger paste,  natural yogurt, cumin, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, mustard oil, sesame oil, salt, and black pepper. I left the chicken in the fridge overnight then brought to room temperature, before pan frying in small batches with a little cooking oil.  Finally, I garnished the dish with sliced fresh mint, fresh chili and toasted sesame seeds.

Tasted pretty good.
