KENYAN CHICKEN MARINATE RECIPE BY LINDA KATHAMBI
It’s a recipe day again!
Please forgive me God for sharing a non vegetarian recipe, that too on a Tuesday.
Today’s recipe is a Kenyan Recipe shared by Linda Kathambi, who happens to be a very good friend of mine. and to tell you, we became friends coz of our love for food. Linda is associated with the media industry, but her real passion is food. Linda is a hardcore food lover, who loves to try out different types of cuisine. And she LOVES Indian food. Not only that, she’s an excellent cook and knows her dishes. Linda has shared wish me her all time favorite recipe – Kenyan Chicken Marinate which I’ll share on this blog today.
No, I have not tried this recipe since I am a vegetarian but knowing Linda her understanding of good food, I can safely recommend this dish. Please go ahead and try this dish, and share your reviews.
A tip for the vegetarians : Use Soya-bean chops or cottage cheese instead of chicken. I do this with the non vegetarian dishes i want to cook. This way you remain a vegetarian and get to eat a fine gravy too.
Also sorry for not sharing the pics as Linda has yet not sent me the pics, but she’ll be sending them soon and I will them in this post for your reference.
