Servings: 1 - 2 people
Difficulty Level - Medium
Preparation Time - 25 minutes
Cook Time - 25 min


  • 500 grams of boneless chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Pickle
  • 1/2 cup plain yoghurt (curd)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or ghee
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish


  • Combine the yoghurt, Lemon Pickle, ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, garam masala, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well to form a marinade.
  • Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and coat them thoroughly. Cover the bowl and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (overnight is even better) to allow the flavours to infuse.
  • In a pan, heat vegetable oil or ghee over medium heat.
  • Add the marinated chicken to the pan and cook until the chicken is tender and cooked through. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, adjust the seasoning if needed. You can add a little more Lemon Pickle for extra tanginess if desired.
  • Garnish the Lemon Pickle Chicken with fresh coriander leaves.
