This recipe, known as Murgh in India, is amazingly flavorful and a real crowd pleaser. I served two BBQ chicken recipes for July 4th, my father-in-law's Chinese Barbecued Chicken (linked below) and this new dish. The kids mostly ate the sweeter Chinese version, but the adults split about 50-50 in terms of their favorites. I saw many going back for their 3rd or 4th piece of the Afghan chicken. It's that good! I adapted this from a recipe by Steven Raichlen, who in turn got it from Karim's restaurant in New Delhi.
