Chicken marinated in hot spices with vegetables
- Garlic 5 cloves
- Chicken 4 pieces
- ½ ginger root
- Cherry tomatoes 16 pieces
- Zucchini 1 piece
- Eggplant 1 piece
- Sweet pepper 1 piece
- Chilli 4 pieces
- Olive oil 60 ml
- Cilantro 15 g
- Vegetable oil 150 ml
- Ground Cumin (Zira) 4 tsp
- Ground cayenne pepper 4 tsp
- Ground black pepper to taste
- Salt to taste
- Fresh pepper to taste
- Cut off the excess fat from the chickens, trim the neck and cut the carcasses in half along the spine with scissors – the breasts must remain whole and covered with skin so that the meat does not dry out during frying.
- Peel four slices of garlic, cut the skin off the ginger, grate everything very finely – until the consistency of gruel. Add black and cayenne pepper, cumin, 100 ml of vegetable oil – and mix everything.
- Rub the chicken mixture with the mixture, put them in a deep bowl with breasts down and leave to stand at room temperature for a couple of hours (and if time permits, put them in the refrigerator for six hours).
- Remove the core from the pepper, chop the pepper, eggplant and zucchini into large cubes with sides of about 2 cm.
- Put the vegetables on a baking sheet or in a baking dish in a single layer, sprinkle with olive oil and remove in an oven heated to 220 degrees for seven or eight minutes.
- Remove the vegetables from the oven, stir so that they are saturated with butter and juice, add the cherry tomatoes cut in half and sprinkle all the finely chopped cilantro leaves and a clove of garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Chicken fry on a grill pan with vegetable oil – for twenty-five minutes, until golden brown, turning over periodically. Serve with baked vegetables, and use grilled chili peppers as decoration.
