Easy Restaurant Styled Grilled chicken!

Grilled chicken


  • Wash,clean and drain the chicken (In this recipe i have used the legs).
  • Make few cuts on the chicken using knife.

To marinate:

  • Chilli powder 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander powder 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala 1/2 tsp
  • Gg paste 1/2 tsp(optional)
  • Pepper less than 1/2 tsp
  • 1/4 tsp oil

Method of Preparation

  1. Marinate the chicken with the above ingredients and let it sit for 2-3 hours/overnight (I kept them in the freezer for 2 days- its tastier as the chicken is soaked in the marinade for a longer time, it gets juicer).
  2. Heat the pressure cooker and add oil(i used just 2 tsps). Use APR.
  3. Add the chicken pieces to the cooker and cook on both sides for 1/2-1 minute. Let the water come out of the chicken.
  4. Now sprinkle little water , 2 tbsp to be exact and close the lid.
    Stop exactly after 1 whistle.
  5. Once the pressure gets released from the cooker, transfer the chicken pieces to a pan/grill pan.
  6. Pour the remaining water too and cook on low for 5 mins each side or until the water evaporates.
  7. Now increase the flame and grill the chicken pieces for 2 mins each side. (Or)
  8. If you have a chapathi wire pan grease it wil oil and grill the chicken pieces on both sides using direct flame(this step is optional- it was good by increasing the flame and grilling in the pan).

Serve hot with chopped onions and lemon.


  • Juice of half lemon can be used to marinate the chicken. Hubby doesnt like it so skipped it.
  • 1 whistle in pressure cooker only not more not less.
  • Marinating overnight makes your chicken juicer and tender.

You can serve it with palak chapathi & mixed veg raita for dinner ♥️😋
