This chicken has an Indian flair to it, but it is mild and will be loved by anyone who loves the flavor of cilantro. It requires some work so it is only for people who are adventurous and looking for something new. Adjust the amount of cilantro--adding up to an extra bunch--to suite your tastes. Try serving with bread and rice.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Remove and discard the skin from the chicken. Wash parts and pat dry. Combine the garlic and ginger and rub over the chicken. Place the chicken parts in a 9x13 inch baking dish, cover with foil and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, place the cilantro, cumin, jalapeno chile pepper and lemon juice in a blender and puree until smooth, adding some water if necessary. Set this aside for later. In a separate small bowl, combine the cashews with the cream. Mix well and pour over the chicken.

  • Bake chicken at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes, or until chicken releases its juices. Then bake, uncovered for 15 more minutes, allowing the liquid in the dish to thicken slightly to a gravy.

  • Remove from oven and combine the gravy in the dish with the reserved cilantro chutney. Mix this well and serve over the chicken.
