Be a kid or a teenage or an adult or an oldie, chicken lovers trend all over the world at all times! One meat that is a favourite of all beyond belief! When cooked, it can be presented in many guises. Sauté it, fry it, toss it, bake it, steam it – eat it the way you want to. Whatever its form may be upon being cooked, its flavour may change but its flesh remains high in protein, low in fat and can be digested easily.
Rub the sea salt inside and all over the outside of the chicken. Grind red chillies with ginger and garlic to a fine paste. Rub this paste inside and all over the outside of the chicken. Let it marinate for fifteen minutes to half an hour.
