head-over-heels ♥ chicken

This recipe is one of my favourites.
Ana Reljin, my childhood friend and I created it while we were living together in Belgrade.
The yogurt makes the chicken soft like a cloud, and it makes you feel so happy :)

I illustrated the recipe for They Draw and Cook, and it will be published in a book in spring 2011! Yay!

Ingredients:

CHICKEN
- chicken thighs (or breasts) cut into little pieces
- yogurt
- olive oil
- garlic
- ginger
- soy sauce
- garam masala
- salt and pepper

DRESSING
- olive oil
- lemon juice
- soy sauce
- finely chopped spring onion
- finely chopped garlic
- finely chopped parsley and coriander (lots of it!!)
- salt + pepper
- a little bit of cayenne pepper (if you like it hot)
- little honey (half of teaspoon)

Directions:

1. Place the chicken pieces in a bowl and all other ingredients.
2. Use your hands to massage in all the spices and yoghurt to make the chicken soft.
3. Leave the chicken like that at least for 10-20 minutes (if you are leaving it for a few hours, cover it with cling film and place it in the fridge)
4. Heat the sauce pan and some olive oil and add the chicken, stir fry it until it turns a bit gold.
5. Place it on a plate with some dressing. You can also add some rocket salad or ruccola!!

It is called the head-over-heels chicken because once you make this dish, you fall in love with it, and how soft the chicken becomes :)

Enjoy!!!
