Tip: "Not in the mood for chicken? Feel free to use beef or, for example, lamb instead. You can buy ready-made garam masala in the supermarket. If you buy it in the store, make sure that the spice mix does not contain any added sugars, starch or other unnecessary additives."


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C.

  2. Mix the spices for garam masala.

  3. Cut the chicken thigh lengthwise.

  4. Place a large skillet over medium heat and fry the chicken in butter until golden brown.

  5. Add half of the garam masala mix to the pan and stir well.

  6. Season with salt and place the chicken, including the juices, in a baking dish.

  7. Add the chopped bell pepper to a small bowl along with the coconut cream and the remaining garam masala mix.

  8. Pour over the chicken. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.

  9. Garnish with parsley and serve.
