This chicken is a single pot, oil free dish. This has got all the flavours and the nutrients packed inside the pot. Cooked in yogurt and with fenugreek leaves it is an absolute detox dish. Fenugreek leaves stands next to ginger as the powerful detox ingredient in cooking. It has all the detox ingredients right from ginger, garlic, fenugreek, goat cheese and garam masala. Studies have also revealed that "garam masala" too possess the detoxifying qualities.

You might think that the dish would taste bitter because of the fenugreek leaves. No, way. It was absolutely warm and scrumptious. I consider this dish  the best healthiest invention in my kitchen. Add this recipe to your detox plan and enjoy great detoxifying.

Detox chicken


Chicken- 500 gms

Greek yogurt/ thick curd- 11/2 cups

Fenugreek leaves- 2 tbspn( finely chopped)

Garam masala- 1 tbspn

Ginger- garlic paste- 1 tbspn

Goat's cheese- 1 tbspn

Salt to taste

Chicken in the marinade


1. Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients except goat's cheese in the oven proof cooking pot and leave it overnight in the fridge for all the ingredients to get in the chicken. Especially marinating overnight allows the yogurt to make the chicken  soft and juicy when cooked.

2. Pre heat the oven at 180 degree celsius for 10 minutes . Sprinkle the goat's cheese on top, cover the pot with the foil and then place the pot in the oven.

3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the chicken is done.

Happy detoxifying!
