Tandoori chicken

Share

Tandoori chicken is one of my favorite takeout dishes when I order food from my local Indian restaurant. Tandoori chicken is a mouth-watering dish which involves marinating chicken in a yogurt marinade. Traditionally cooked in a special clay oven called a tandoor, you can cook it on the grill to achieve a charred coating.

Start by marinating slashed chicken thighs with lemon juice, paprika and onion. Make a yogurt marinade by combining yogurt, garlic and ginger with spices. Marinate the chicken for a minimum of one hour before cooking on a grill. Serve with rice or flatbread and a fresh green salad.

To make the Tandoori chicken, you will need the following ingredients:
