If you are looking for a tangy recipe then your search stops right here!! Hold on!!

My favorite is a Lemon Fish which i usually order from a restaurant close by, but this is actually as good as a restaurant one. The combination of the chicken with some parsley , onions and red chili flakes gives it a unique flavor.
