You guys, I had such a good good day in the kitchen yesterday. A lot of days I set out to blog and maybe 2 out of 4 recipes get deemed “good enough” for the blog. However yesterday was a unicorn day and ya girl churned out three bangin recipes!!
Today I’m sharing the first one with you and it’s this Hariyali Jeera Chicken ! This is a recipe I’ve worked on a few times but couldn’t seem to get it right! My goal was to make this with simple ingredients and really let the flavor of cumin and cilantro be the the most forward flavors! Well, I achieved just that.
I used bone in thicken thighs for this recipe because I wanted that juicy, fall of the bone kind of chicken. The bones get removed in the end, so don’t worry if you’re not a fan of bone in meant and prefer boneless!
Traditionally “hariyali” dishes also have spinach in them but I felt this was perfect and didn’t want to test the water by adding spinach. You could totally add in a handful of spinach leaves at the end or add them into the Hariyali mix into the food processor. Kale, scallions and most leafy greens would be really fun to experiment with in here so knock yourself out!
