Baked chicken Rogan Josh Recipe belongs to Fine Indian cuisine. The Moguls, known for the splendor and grandeur they brought to 16-century India, originated this style of preparation as a lamb dish.

I have substituted chicken for the lamb and marinated it in yogurt to tenderize the meat.

Indian’s great aromatics-coriander, cardamom, and cloves-impart their perfumes as the dish gently cook.

Serve this delicious baked chicken Rogan Josh with spicy rice and tomato apricot chutney.
