Columbian Inspired Spicy Baked Chicken

So the other day I was reading Erica's blog, My Columbian Recipes and her chicken recipe caught my eye, as everything does on there! , it called for fresh cilantro and thyme I didn't have either. So I added coriander/cilantro powder and curry leaves, also masala powder and came up with this, it is really good.

  • 3 chicken legs or thighs
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon coriander powder
  • one teaspoon salt or less
  • 10 curry leaves
  • one spoon garam masala
  • one spoon Amma's masala powder
  • one spoon cumin powder
  • a little lemon juice
  • one spoon vinegar
  1. blend all of the above ingredients together minus the chicken
  2. then mix with the chicken and marinate for a few hours, Erica did it overnight I bet this is better but I was hungry!
  3. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 300 degree's
I ate it with back beans and rice and veggies

Go on give it a shot got to love fusion food!

What creative dishes have you come up with lately?


  1. I made this too!! but not with all the additions! looks good

  2. Looks delicious! I've made a sweet potato soup recently, as well as some delicious appetizers. This weekend I hope to try a few new recipes, but I've been in a slump this past week as far as "newness". I'll get on that this weekend! Have a good weekend, Rebecca!

  3. Yes, well creativity and Gina don't mix well together. The most creative I've been in the past week was mixing my lean ground turkey with avocado and red pepper, to make it expand and make more delicious burgers!

    This dish does sound really delicious. I love all those flavors.

  4. Jhonny; wow so cool you made it as well.
    Nicole: oh will look forward to see what you make Nicole great to know you

  10. Rebecca....this does look good and I think you did well without having had the right ingredients, eh? Creativity is what makes confidence! Right? Fusion...gosh...everything I make is a bit of this or that....or a dinner might be one dish from this country and one from that....that is how I like it!
