Grilled Coriander and Lime Chicken

Tuesday, 8 November 2011

It's actually Actifried coriander and lime chicken to be more precise.

Grilled Coriander and Lime Chicken

Looks like it's been grilled in the oven, doesn't it? If you are not familiar with the Tefal Actifry, here's a post about it. In short, it's a fryer that uses very little oil. It basically blows out dry hot air creating an effect similar to grilling or roasting in the oven. It is one of my most used kitchen gadgets now. I came across this recipe on Zurin's blog and it's a recipe adapted from Rachel Allen's recipe. The original recipe involves grilling the chicken in the oven, but since I don't have an oven, I used my Actifry. I am quite impressed with the results. The skin came out nicely browned and slightly charred. Delicious.
