♥...Briyani Chicken...♥

Okey, back with a chicken recipe again! Hahaha...must have a chicken dish once a week na! What to do? I'm a ChickenLover...maybe can change my nick to ChickenLover just like Sonia@Nasilemaklover...sengihnampakgigi

It's okey, I came to the cyberworld as love2cook, so better remain my identity then...kenyit (actually now turning lazy2cook)..jelir

This is another experiment on the chicken...(so pity the chickens, always get experimented from me, if only they can speak!) ayam...

I had some briyani spice lying on rack for few months already (nope, it has not expired as yet senyumkenyit). Never felt like making briyani rice, so used it on a chicken instead.

Just a very simple recipe to share...ingredients may look plenty...hihihi!
