How to make Coriander Garlic Baked Chicken Recipe
To begin making the Coriander and Garlic Baked Chicken Recipe, we will first make the marinade.
To make the marinade,
Combine the coriander leaves, garlic, green chillies, salt, lemon juice, olive oil and honey. Grind to a coarse paste without adding any water. We are looking for a coarsely ground marinade and not a paste.
Remove from the mixer jar and transfer to a large bowl.
Add the chicken breasts to the bowl of marinade, smear the marinade all over the chicken and set aside to marinate for at least an hour.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius.
Line a baking tray with aluminum foil, grease generously with oil and place the chicken breasts on it and bake for 15-18 minutes. Keep some of the marinade aside in a bowl.
Halfway through baste the Coriander Garlic Baked Chicken with remaining marinade and olive oil
When the chicken is done (about 15 minutes), remove from the oven and allow it to rest for a few minutes and serve hot.
Alternatively, one could also cook the chicken the same way in a non-stick pan on a gas flame and keep drizzling a little olive oil and smearing it with marinate while it is cooking in the pan. Once you noticed that the chicken is cooked, remove from the pan and serve hot.
