Spicy Baked Chicken

Chicken drumsticks and thighs are very kid friendly as according to my honey bunches it have handles :)
Its spicy and tangy pieces of succulent chicken are irresistible. Its another quick cooking meal where your preparation time is barely 10 minutes. I wish you could hear the crispy skin sounds through the pictures.

  1. Yum! I have never used raw mango powder! Interesting!

    1. Raw mango is sour and acidic in nature and it complements baked chicken very well as it helps to balance the use of spices and brown sugar :)
      Give it a try, you will love it :)
