Here is an amazingly simple yet exquisite chicken with its roots in the Arabian land. This recipe requires simple ingredients, fresh boneless chicken, and a hot grill. It was made by my friend Indresh when we went over to his barbecue party. The marinade looked mouthwatering, the chicken was spicy and grilled to perfection. The core was moist and juicy. He paired it with a fruit cocktail and people were constantly hovering over the grill for more. Here is the recipe in all its splendor.

What you need: Serves 4 to 6

4 boneless chicken breasts

1 tsp Paprika / red chili powder

1 tsp salt or as much as you need

1 tsp black pepper powder

1 Tbsp lime juice (optional)

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp olive oil

Using a wooden mallet, flatten the chicken breasts.

Mix all the powders and lime juice together; rub them on to the chicken breasts.

Let the marinated chicken soak for about an hour.

Cook it on a hot grill and serve it hot, with a garlic dipping sauce or any other sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
