This dish is very easy to make ,you just need to marinate the chicken for a minimum of 2 hour. You can even marinate it overnight . To cook you don’t even need your brain to work. Place the marinated chicken on gas stove and grab a book or spend some time watching you favorite TV show.

In just 15 minute your dish will be ready.I have done a twist to this dish adding smoked lemon flavored butter which really makes the dish a winner at your table.
