  • Oregano -1/2 spoon
  • salt- as per needed

  2. Now add the chicken pieces and chilies to the baking dish and mix well with the ingredients.. Gently apply the mixture inside the chicken skin as well..
  3. Now cover the baking dish with a cling wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours.. Cilantro lime chicken
  4. Pre-heat the oven at 190 degree for 10 minutes. Bake the chicken after removing the cling wrap for 35 minutes at 190 degree.. After 35 minutes, open the oven and check.. If required broil for another 10 minutes..I broiled only for 5 minutes.. Because I loved that greenish shade of the chicken..

Most probably it will take 40-45 minutes for the chicken pieces to get cooked! Sometimes less too.. It all depends on the oven and temperature..

If you are serving this baked chicken with any bread / chapathi, don’t worry about any side dish or curry.. Because in the bottom of the dish you can see some yummy tangy sauce enriched with the herbs , lemon and garlic๐Ÿ˜‹!!
