1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper

1 handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped.

Method:

  1. Start preparations the evening before. Combine the chilli powder and oil in a small bowl with the lime zest and juice, garlic, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and salt and pepper, to form a wet paste. Generously smear this spice, rub all over the chicken, then cover and chill overnight.
  2. When you get home from work the following day, heat the oven to 200 degrees/Gas 6 and put the chicken into a roasting tin. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.(Alternatively, cook in a griddle pan.)
  3. To make the dipping sauce, mix the yoghurt with the cucumber, spring onions and mint. Serve with the chicken and steamed vegetables.
