Smoke infusion: To give an extra flavour of barbeque smoke. Take 2-3 charcoal chunks and burn them on the gas burner until it turn a red colour. Take the burning charcoal chunks in a small bowl and keep the bowl in the bowl of the marinated chicken pieces.

Heat a grill pan to the maximum. Lightly put oil on it(The pan shouldn’t be medium heat) and take out the smoke-infused marinated chicken pieces and place it on a high heat grill pan. Cook each side of the chicken pieces for 2-3 mins to get grill marks on both sides. Now lower the heat and cook the chicken on both sides. Keep turning over the chicken pieces so that it doesn’t get burned. This may take 15-20 minutes to be fully cooked.
