    11.14 Tasty - just don't dry out chicken.

    Quick and easy marinade - just chuck chillies, mint, lemon juice, saffron, garlic in the blender then pour over chicken strips. I made double what I needed so the first night the marinade had been 30 mins but the second night it was 24 hours. Didn't detect a huge difference in flavoring between the two, probably because the strips are quite slim so a 30 min marinade works well . Lovely combination of flavors - also looks pretty with flecks of green, red and orange.
