Griddle/BBQ Chicken Steak

image

Ingredients:
Four thinly sliced chicken steak pieces
1 tbsp plain yogurt
1 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
1 tsp tandoori masala
lemon juice
1 tsp Aminas Spices Chicken Dust
1 tsp Aminas Spices Tandoori Paste (or any other brand)
1/2 – 1 tsp salt
1 heaped tsp coriander and cumin powder
oil for coating

Method:
1. Marinate the chicken in the above ingredients minus oil.
2. Warm the griddle pan on medium heat so it starts to radiate a little heat. Take a chicken slice and make sure its slathered in the masala, brush oil onto one side and place on griddle pan. Press down with a spatula until lines form on the chicken slice (3-4 mins). Then brush oil on the side facing up and turn onto the pan. Press down till griddle lines form. Repeat with each piece. You can put two to three slices at the same time depending on how big your griddle pan is.
3. Bake the chicken in the oven at gas mark 4 for another 15 minutes or so to ensure its cooked through. Do not cover when cooking. Serve in buns or on its own with chunky chips.
