Connection Series: Tandoori Chicken and a Connection Game to remember
This week’s menu and Connection Game
Our Lunch party this week was an absolute highlight of my week. We hosted the Kingdom Culture worship team who were recording their live album that night. We had the team of about 14 people over for lunch for a break in their busy day of preparation.
Our Connection Game was:
I Remember When. This game is designed to provoke you to talk as if you are one year ahead in the future. You are encouraged to prophesy into what you see and what you want to happen in the future from that day. We described what we saw for the worship team and their album one year from now.
I remember when we had the KCC Worship Team over for lunch prior to their live recording, and little did we know they would go viral they would be invited to do a private musical gig at Parliament House for the Prime Minister and some of his close friends.
The dreams got more and more gloriously outrageous as we went around the table.
I love this game. It allows you to dream and envision what you want to see happen in the future in certain areas of your life. In business, finance, or in your relationship with God and each other.
Try it at your next dinner party.
Dinner Party Menu
So I have discovered Tandoori Chicken! Seriously this is so incredibly simple and easy, and extremely tasty. I think the secret is planning ahead and marinating the chicken at least four hours prior to the dinner party. I try to do it in the morning, in a big bowl, and then you chuck it in the fridge ready for your dinner party. Keep this simple. I parred the chicken with a simple garden salad, with extra Greek Yoghurt on the side. You could also cook up some rice if you want. Remember the more you simplify your meal, the more time you have to spend with your guests.
- 1.5kg of chicken drumsticks (leave skin on, organic is always best)
- 2 heaping table spoons of Larich curry paste *
- 1.5 cups of full fat greek natural yoghurt
- 1 tablespoon of paprika
- Squeeze of lemon
- Blend the paste, paprika and yogurt in a blender, or mix well in a bowl until ingredients are well combined.
- Add the marinate to the chicken and put in a large bowl to marinate overnight for (at least 4-8 hours)
- When ready to cook.
- Turn oven to 180 degrees.
- Place drumsticks on a lined baking tray. Bake for 30mins. Turn once. In the last 10 minutes of cooking, turn setting to grill to crisp up! Check that they are cooked by cutting one open and making sure they are cooked through (cooking time may vary depending on your oven).
I love to mix rocket, cherry tomatoes, grated fresh beetroot, grated carrot, and grated cucumber in a big bowl. Dress with balsamic or apple cider vinegar.
Side of Yoghurt
We had extra yogurt of the side. I kept it simple. Added a touch of cumin and lemon juice to the yoghurt. Delicious.
*available at selected Indian/Asian grocery stores. I added the link just so you know what the label looks like. If you can’t find Larich, any curry paste is fine. Tandoori curry paste or vindaloo curry paste will work just fine.
There you have it beloved.
A connection game and a dinner party menu!
Try it this week and if you do be sure to tell me about it!!
A handy hint for the “I Remember when’ Connection Game, try to give it a subject matter or topic so that you are all dreaming and prophesying into the same area. It makes it even more fun.
Connect with each other this week.
Remember, in order to reign in life we have to connect with one another.
You are truly loved and deeply cherished,

Wink: I remember when I used to write incessantly about Oprah being my best friend. Here I am, five years from now, sitting in Oprah’s house, one of her closest friends, and so deeply entwined in her world. Stedman, (her partner) makes us tea, as we talk about all things on our hearts, including our current book of choice, the hottest celebrity right now, what podcasts we listened to that morning and who we are voting for. It’s deep. Afterwards we do a workout with Oprah’s Personal Trainer. Halle Berry joins us for that.
