Thai style chicken

Chicken Whole -1
Lemon grass powder-2 tsps
Galangal powder - 2 tsps
White chilly powder-2tsps
Fresh garlic paste-1tsp
Oil -1tbspn
Lemon juice-2 tsp
Salt as per taste

De-skin, clean and wash the whole chicken. Make some slits on the breast, thighs and drumsticks, drain, rub some lemon juice and salt and keep aside. In a small bowl mix all the 3 powders (galangal, lemon grass and white chilly) with 1tbspn oil and rub the chicken with it. Let it marinate for 1/2 an hr and bake in the oven for 45minutes or till done.

An alternative method to this recipe would be to use a ground paste of fresh lemon grass and galangal instead of dried powders. This would enhance the flavours and taste.
