Indian Tandoori Chicken

Indian Tandoori Chicken


The whole family loved this recipe and asked to have it again. I marinated the chicken overnight and cooked it on the BBQ. The following day I served the left-overs cold and they were a hit too. I love how it is so easy and uses ingredients that I always have available in the pantry/fridge.

Directions

  1. Using a sharp knife cut the chicken breasts into fillets approximately 1.5 cm thick.
  2. Sprinkle with lemon juice and place to one side.
  3. Mix together next nine ingredients in a bowl.
  4. Add yoghurt and mix well.
  5. Coat the chicken fillets completely with the tandoori mixture. Cover the bowl and place into
  6. the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  7. Preheat grill or frypan and cook chicken, turning frequently and basting with extra tandoori
  8. mix during the process.
  9. Chicken is ready when the juice runs clear
