  4. I love the idea of cooking a chicken this way! However, my spice sensitivity, even after living in Karachi for three years, would probably kick in if I made this at full strength!
    I think a number of spices used would be too much for me. I may have to reduce it my half or three-quarters (or just make it full strength for my husband *only* which I’m sure he would LOVE!)

      Yes,,must try this juicy chicken recipe,,You can adjust spices accordingly ..Marinate chicken with salt,little bit red chilli and chaat masala,,,wrap each chicken piece separately and add more remaining spices in which piece you want more spicy.


  5. You make it look so easy. I have never tried chicken in foil. Mostly do fish. 😁

    Oh my God! Your post has not jus made me hungry, but has also reminced the memories of the time before I got married. First time I had this chicken was at a wedding in Karachi and after that, it became really popular and everyone started having it in their weddings.
