Want really spicy and flavorful and finger licking good chicken? then, this recipe is the one you are looking for. I saw a recipe for Achar Gosht ( Mutton in Pickling Spices) in A Taste of India by Madhur Jaffrey and loved all the spices that go into it. I did not have any lamb/mutton in hand, but as always there was some chicken in the freezer. I kept the chicken breasts out to defrost and finished off some chores I had around the house. As i started making, I experimented with a whole bunch of other different spices that I have previously used in making pickles (this is the Indian style spicy hot pickles I am talking about with cayenne pepper and lots of other spices and oil) and also in making chicken curry at home. So, this recipe is based on the original recipe – a recipe from Bhopal by Madhur Jaffrey but with a lot of modifications from me. Hope you all enjoy it, like how my meat-a-holic did!
A word of caution : It is REALLY hot and spicy! So those with less tolerance for heat, start with spices about less than half of what is given here and work your way up from that.
