This is a simple, healthy meal for the whole family. For best results marinade the chicken overnight, however if you are short of time, then just a few hours will do.
4-6 chicken breast fillets or thigh fillets
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 head garlic
10 cardomon pods, seeds crushed
1 teaspoon coriander, ground
½ teaspoon chilli flakes (or 1 fresh chilli, deseeded)
½ teaspoon turmeric
Marinade the chicken with the spices, lemon zest and juice and olive oil, for a few hours or overnight.
Heat the oven to 220C and put in an oven proof dish or tray to heat.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then add the chicken and the marinade to the hot dish and cook for about 25 – 35 minutes until cooked through.
Serve with rice or roast potatoes and some seasonal greens.
