Grilled Chicken with Garlic Rice

This one is a favourite with my boys. If I ask them what they want for dinner, this is what they ask for. This is a combo that they eat without any complains. The garlic rice was a favourite with my sister and me also when we were kids. Our dad used to make it for us. Both the garlic rice and the grilled chicken is very easy to make. And it hardly takes any time.

For the Garlic Rice:

  • Use left over rice, or make fresh if needed.
  • Heat ghee or butter, saute as many chopped garlic cloves as preferred. Some people like lots of garlic and some prefer less.
  • Add the rice and salt and mix well.
For the Grilled Chicken:

  • Marinade the chicken with curd, ginger garlic paste, salt, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, lemon juice and 1tbsp oil, for 4 to 6 hours in the refrigerator. 
  • I also added some diced capsicum and diced onions to the marinade, but that is optional.
  • Bring it to room temperature before you grill it or barbecue it.
