Chicken Lajawab

There are many ways to prepare the South Asian dish called chicken lajawab (lajawab often is translated from Urdu as “priceless” or “peerless”). Our rendition, a riff on a recipe from “Madhur Jaffrey’s Step-by-Step Cooking,” employs a high-impact seasoning paste two ways: it’s rubbed onto chicken parts that are cooked in a hot oven, and it’s combined with yogurt to serve as an accompaniment. Depending on their capsaicin content, the jalapeños may add a decent amount of chili heat; if you wish to temper their spiciness, remove the seeds and ribs before dropping the chilies into the blender. Basmati rice or warmed naan are excellent alongside.

Tip

Don’t skip the step of slashing the chicken parts. The cuts allow the seasoning paste to flavor the meat throughout. They also help speed up cooking.
