VERSATILE LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN
V is for Versatile| #BlogchatterA2Z
My forte is “Jugaad” a Punjabi word for innovation. I named this recipe as Versatile Lemon Garlic Chicken as it lets me don my jugaadu avatar. It is also easy and ready in under 30 minutes with minimal prep! Boneless chicken in a light broth with lots of fresh kale from my garden. The cherry tomatoes are just that; the cherry on top. It is perfect with any kind of bread or roti to soak it up.
This Chicken is as easy and quicker version of my favourite Keto Pepper Chicken. Just take some boneless chicken, a bunch of kale(replace with spinach or even fenugreek), and a warm, lemony broth, my favourite crushed garlic and pink onions, toss them, swirl them for a perfect dish.
Versatile Lemon Garlic Chicken
Season and char the chicken. Love the added color and texture after the chicken cooks…succulent, juicy and soft. Sauté the garlic and onion and toss in the chicken to the pot. If you are hard-pressed for time you can skip this and add the chicken at this point without charring separately. Pile on the rest of the ingredients; mixed herbs, kale, stock and chicken
This is a perfect jugaadu or versatile recipe – which means it’s an empty dish or kora kagaz you can fill in with whatever you have in the pantry
