Chicken Lasooni

I had made Paneer Lasooni a while back and was pretty happy with the outcome. So when I got an order for Chicken Lasooni, I went ahead and said yes even though I had never made it before.

This version adapted from the paneer recipe seems to have been well received as have made it multiple times for orders and so now it finds a place on the blog too. Plus I needed an excuse to showcase my new logo and the new pan too.
