Chicken Ghee Roast

Note: Ghee is clarified butter and is usually made in Indian homes.
Don't be alarmed by the amount of ghee used; this is one of those indulgent dishes that depends solely on the fat used and should not be substituted with any other oil.
The longer you marinate the chicken, the more tender it will be when cooked.
