1 tablespoon chilli powder
2 tablespoons Olivado Avocado Oil
3-4 cloves crushed garlic
Small piece grated ginger
Juice of half of a lemon

Method:
Mix together and rub over chicken pieces,  marinate an hour or overnight if you can.
When ready to cook , spread out on an oven tray and bake for 30-40 minutes at 200 degreees, or until cooked.

Ashia’s tips:
Serve with naan bread instead of rice. Or just the butter chicken on its own.
