I always wonder why we go for deep fried chicken recipes. This grilled chicken recipe is very tasty and healthy . Still many of us prefer chicken fry recipes to serve for dinner. Grilled chicken thighs with garlic paste is my favorite combo. This spice-rubbed grilled chicken recipe is very simple to make and yet with simple ingredients. No mess chicken recipe, i must say. Those lazy evening i always prefer this dinner meal combo without even going for a second thought. You can also use chicken breast instead of chicken thighs but i personally prefer chicken thighs. As chicken breast is more thicker than chicken thigh you have to adjust the cooking time also. So do try this healthy way to enjoy chicken recipes. 


Chicken thighs    - 3 nos, skinless, make slits
Chili powder       - 1 tsp
Garlic                  - 4 cloves
Pepper powder    - half tsp

Curd / yogurt           - 1 tbsp
Salt                           - to taste
Butter cubes             - to top with, can use coconut oil instead


  • Grind together chili powder, garlic cloves, Kasuri methi, curd, pepper powder, coriander powder, vinegar, half tsp coconut oil, salt to a smooth paste. 
  • Marinate the chicken thighs with this chicken marinade and keep refrigerated for 1 hour.
