Chicken is my all time favorite and I prefer to try different types of chicken dishes.Dhania (coriander) Chicken is one of my favorite one.Whenever I think of something spicy delicious chicken dish, it comes to my mind.From the name of the dish, one can guess that the main ingredient is coriander.The main time taken by the dish is marination of the chicken, otherwise the cook time is very little.

So lets try it....

Dishes preferred with Dhania Chiken

I specially prefer some kind of spicy rice.This dish is just too good with Egg Chicken Masala Rice.Besides you can try this with plain steam rice/ jeera rice, Romali Roti.

      This looks ravishing. I wonder? It appears to be similar to an Indian dish my sisters boyfriend cooks for us from time to time. I'm not sure them name but whenever he makes it, there isn't an empty chair around the table.
