Easy Lazy Chicken

This is one of my favorite chicken recipes and it requires neither time nor culinary skills, but tastes delightful. In fact, we did not take a single picture when we last made this preparation, which proves how lazy Sid and I were at the time.

1. Marinate about 500gm chicken (preferably with bones) in 2 Tbsp vinegar, salt, and 2 tsp crushed pepper. Cover and leave overnight in the fridge.

2. Melt 1-2 Tbsp butter in a pan and sauté the chicken (without marinade) till it turns golden brown.

3. Add the marinade, some more freshly ground pepper (yup, I'm a sucker for fresh pepper!) and salt, if required. Cover and cook for 10min or till the chicken is tender and smells heavenly.

4. Garnish with chopped coriander or basil leaves and devour with bread or butter rice.
