Curry Leaves Baked Chicken

For me its a standard thing to add curry leaves in almost every Indian savoury dishes. Curries for that matter are also not complete without the aromatic leaves. And for the first ever, its something new. I baked two pieces of chicken after marinating with curry leaves, curry powder and other essential ingredients. Then served the lovable chicken pieces over a bed of lettuce leaves and  some cucumber slices.

2 pieces ( about 350g) of chicken breast (with bones)
1 tbsp meat curry powder
3 sprigs curry leaves - roughly shredded
1 tsp ginger juice
1 tsp garlic juice
1 tbsp onion juice
Salt for taste
2 tbsp oil  

Rub chicken pieces with all the ingredients except oil.
Gently poke with a fork to sip the ingredient inside.
Marinate for at least 4 hours.
Smear a baking pan with oil and place the chicken pieces inside with the marinated ingredients. .
Bake on a preheated oven (10 mins) for about 50 mins or until chicken is cooked and crispy on the outside.
Served on a bed of lettuce leaves with some slices of cucumber (optional)
