Gharam Kuku

Wapendwa, I love this easy recipe and it goes well with almost anything! I hope you try it and please let me know when you do! NOTE: Chicken varies in size. If your chicken is larger or smaller than mine, Adjust the cooking time so you get the tenderness and cooked-throughness you desire. Happy cooking!
