Lemony chicken and chilly potato

So today I saw this recipe for a lemony chicken on TV that I just had to try. It looked so yum and tender on TV itself that I could only imagine how lovely it would be if I tried it out. Well, I added a few additional things to it to make it a tad more spicy. Nonetheless, you should try it out too..Its really minimalistic in terms of the ingredients but the final product is uber awesome. Infact, all you guys out there with access to TLC, you should check out their Family Food Fights. Its a treasure house of traditional family recipes.

Here is what you need,

Chicken - Leg or Breast pieces
Zest of one big lemon
Zest of one lime
Grated Garlic - 4-5 pods
Juice one 1 lemon
A touch of grated ginger
Black Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - One bunch, finely chopped
Potatoes - 2-3
Chilly flakes- 1 tbsp
Onions - 2 (cut into rings)
Salt to taste

Marinate the chicken using the zest of lime, lemon, coriander leaves, pepper powder, lime juice and salt and set aside for a minimum of 30 minutes. (The more the better)

Then, lightly oil a pan and fry the chicken until golden brown. Remember to cover the chicken as it fries to eliminate the need for more oil.

Once fried remove the chicken and rest it on kitchen tissues.

Now toss the already boiled and diced potatoes in to the pan in which the chicken was fried, along with the onions and chilly flakes.

Add a splash of lemon juice to the potatoes to give it a zingy effect.

Saute them for about a minute or two.

Serve the chicken on a bed of spicy potatoes and onion.
