Ingredients for the chicken of many smells

Part1: The Chicken!

1 Tbs Coriander powder
2 Tsp Garam masala

Salt (to your own high blood pressure's desertion)

Prep your station!

1. Cube the chicken into 1 cm blocks
2. Put all the ingredients in a bowl
3. Mix well with the chicken
4. Marinate for an hour

While the chicken is being marinated, time to prep the sauce.
