Chicken with Peppercorns and Ginger

This is a recipe by Anjum Anand. It's simple to make and is one of the best Chicken recipes I've ever had. Give it a bash and then buy the book...Indian Food Made Easy.

You need:

For the marinade..
9 or 10 cloves of Garlic, peeled
10g fresh Ginger - peeled
1 tsp Garam Masala

Other ingredients..
1 Chicken stock cube, dissolved in 3 tbsp hot water
1kg chicken breasts and thighs, skinned
3 tbsp Vegetable oil
1 small Onion - peeled and finely chopped
2 green Chilli
15g fresh Ginger, peeled and sliced into shreds
1 tbsp Ground Coriander
salt, to taste
200ml water
1 tbsp ground Black Peppercorns
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
2 tsp Lemon juice
2 handfuls of fresh chopped Coriander

Blitz the Garlic, Ginger, Garam Masala and Stock together to make a paste. Then cover the chicken with it and leave in the fridge for at least an hour. 2-3 hours is better! Bring the Chicken back to room temperature before cooking.

Heat the oil in pan and add the Onion and sauté for 6-8 minutes until brown. Add the Chilli, Ginger, Ground Coriander and salt, then leave to cook for about a minute.

Add the chicken to the pan with the marinade and brown all over. Pour in the water and Black Pepper, bring it to the boil then lower the heat, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Check often and add a splash more water if needed.

Turn up the heat and leave for 3-4 minutes to reduce the sauce to just a few tablespoons, then stir in the Garam Masala, Lemon juice and Fresh Coriander just before serving with pickles, rice, indian breads etc....

I woulԁ nοt put it in the fгeеzer for a
long time, you can put it in the freеzer for a couple of houгs but I wοuld not put it in there for
a couple of weeks. When you arе baκing bread,
уou сan rаise the breаd dough in the cold oven and thеn just turn οn thе oven tο the cοrreсt tempeгaturе once the bread іs
raіsed. ӏ don't like pizza sauces, so I opt to use two cans of diced tomatoes as the first layer-one can of plain and the other of Italian.

Too cool!
