Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust

4.6
(86)

Don't be turned off by the idea of 'just' salt and pepper. The marinade is intense with flavor, but it's the final seasoning of simple salt and pepper that really makes it delicious. Gotta use Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper here, please don't bother with the regular stuff. Such a difference.
