Baked Chicken with Coriander (East Indian Style) - Margaret Ullrich


By now coriander should be an old friend.
Especially if you've been making your own Curry Blend.
As mild or as strong as you like.

You're free from being a slave to what's on the grocery spice shelf!!
Okay, it's not exactly Freedom 55, but its nice.

And so is this recipe for chicken.

Rice is nice, and easy.
But, if your grocery store has an East Indian section, check out the starch choices.
Excitement you can afford!!
Really, a different food section should be on your 'Bucket List'.
