Garlic chicken Indian style / how to make garlic chicken / step by step images of garlic chicken recipe / recipe video of garlic chicken

Garlic chicken as the name suggests, garlic plays a very immense and considerable role in this recipe.This recipe does not include a big list of ingredients instead it would just require a few of them.

The chicken is marinated in curd and a paste of lots of garlic, a little ginger and some chillies. This marinated chicken is then cooked in the sauted onions until tender. For me it took exact 20 minutes, however, it should be done until cooked.

So lets begin with the recipe


½ kg Chicken (skinless and medium pieces)

2 medium Onions (thinly sliced)

20 cloves Garlic

1 inch Ginger

3 Green Chillies

½ cup Curd

½ tsp Turmeric powder

½ tsp Coriander powder

¼ tsp Red Chilli powder



Grind 15 cloves of garlic, 1 inch ginger and 3 green chillies to a coarse paste.

If you like, you could garnish it with some coriander leaves. I didn’t like to interfere the beautiful aromatic flavor of  this garlic chicken with any other essence, so, I kept it simple.

This tender and succulent garlic chicken could be served with any Indian bread of your choice or even rice.


Do not add more flavors and spices, keep it simple.

It’s a dry dish, however, water can be added to make gravy.

The time of cooking may vary on the intensity of the heat and the thickness of the pan used. So keep on checking at regular intervals.
