  • Melt Astra in a pan and add the chili powder, turmeric, pepper, soy sauce and sugar. Stir for minute and then add the Knorr chicken cube. Take off from heat and keep on stirring till the cube has dissolved. Then, add the mustard, maple syrup and whisk slightly to combine.
  • Meanwhile, prick the chicken with a fork, being careful not to damage the skin. Pour the above seasoning mixture over the chicken and let it marinate in the chiller for one hour.

  • In a separate pan, add a few teaspoons of the remaining marinade and mix in the herbs well. Toss the vegetables in it and serve with the chicken.
  • Chef’s Tip:

    Instead of a filling, you can insert spices/herbs like lemon, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom or bay leaf for a different flavour.
