Thanks..
Simple recipe.
I unintentionally marinated the recipe overnight and it still turned out great.
Works better with Halal chicken (with bones) than the bone less variety.

viji....
In ur recepies u never mentioned abt adding water. Is that ok? Anyway i am going to try pepper chicken tonight...

Hi Manu,
Chicken will ooze out water when you cover and cook it.If you feel that is not enough for it to cook then you can add little water.Hope the dish has come out well and you liked it.
