Tamarind-Imli Chicken Recipe

Tamarind-Imli Chicken is a baked chicken roast or tikka recipe. My family like chicken roasts, tikkas so I always try to make them in different flavors. This time I made it with imli/tamarind sauce. Tamarind sweet and sour sauce which we add to our dahi vadas. Yes this will give your chicken a fantastic flavour. But this is not just about sauce, it is also the technique of cooking or baking your chicken to get that grill taste. Follow the recipe as it is to know how you will get grilled chicken taste when you are actually baking the chicken. 

I used a ready made Mr sauce imli tamarind sauce. But you can use any brand’s tamarind sauce like East End, Heera, Maggi. Or you can make it yourself.

Marinate chicken legs with the marination. Cover and leave over night.
Or I like to marinate them for 2 days in fridge. This will give them a really nice taste.
