You have to believe me when I say that this one is a quickie – in the food sense of the word. A Quick Chicken Roast with absolutely no grinding or chopping involved. You just need to be in and out of the kitchen for a few minutes each time and the chicken is done. And yet it turns out so yummy to eat with chapatis or as a side. Make it to believe it. If only everything in life could be done in a quickie 🙂
