Whenever I make this Vindaloo chicken my whole family loved it, sometimes my relatives are like – can I have one more chicken piece! Vindaloo Chicken has a spicy, tangy and a bit of sweet taste.

Marination of the chicken is the most important part, more the marination more tender chicken pieces. I always prefer the marinade overnight for better results. The beauty of this dish is the combination of Indian spices.
