Chicken Korma

Chicken Korma


This is a mild and creamy, very decadent way of eating chicken. The marinade alone is out of this world. Just wazz it in your blender and you have a marinade or topping or salad dressing that is a total flavor explosion. Spices and lemon and yogurt. It is so fresh and zingy.

You can serve this dish with a fresh salad with a yogurt dressing (or make extra marinade and use that thinned down) quinoa or rice. If you like Indian food, you will love this recipes. I like to eat it with vegetables instead of chicken (cauliflower, peas and diced potato or a little spinach thrown in).

It really is easy to make although it looks like there are lots of ingredients. Once you get the spices you can make this dish over and over again. I know you won’t get tired of this. It’s too tasty.
