Experimenting with different flavors and spices is exciting and challenging. I picked up this Shami Kabab mix (brand is: Shan) at an Indian grocery store and I love it! It is spicy and strong and a little goes a long way. I used one whole packet for 10 pieces of chicken and that is the perfect amount for the perfect amount of flavor and spice.

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash chicken and pat dry. Place in large mixing bowl.
  2. Add olive oil, salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix and rub it all over the chicken.
  3. You will be marinating this chicken in a large plastic container with a lid. On the bottom of the container, sprinkle some of the Shami Kabab spice. Lay down a few thighs over it. On top of the thighs, pour 1 tbs balsamic over it.
  4. Sprinkle shami kabab mix over that chicken. Lay down another layer of chicken. Pour 1 tbs balsamic, sprinkle the shami kabab mix, lay another layer of chicken, etc.
  5. When you are done layering your chicken, seal the top and refridgerate for 2 days. YES; that is 48 hours.

  7. When ready to make it, preheat oven to 375. Lay down chicken (one layer) in baking pan. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes. When you take out the pan, cover it in foil and let the chicken rest out of the oven for about 20-30 minutes.
