Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

I love tandoori chicken, so the last time I had a whole chicken, I decided to just roast the WHOLE thing in a tandoori marinade. Note that the cayennne, hot peppers and black pepper are optional - use one or more as desired.

The recipe here uses a skinless chicken - the fat and calories will be MUCH higher if you leave the skin on.

The foil is essential if you don't want a dried-out chicken - remember that this is skinless chicken!

Each serving here is the traditional quarter chicken (breast and wing, or leg and thigh) - probably enough for 2 individual 3-oz servings, so keep that in mind when you look at the nutrition information. :)

You can use the same marinade and just coat 4 chicken breasts or 4 leg-and-thigh pieces instead, if you prefer a quicker, less messy preparation.

Enjoy!

I threw this together from what I had in my pantry at the time. With proper planning, I'd use fat-free soup and sour cream. It is delicious as-is, but fat could certainly stand to be cut.

You can put the chicken into the slow cooker while still frozen, so prep time is virtually non-existent! A great choice to throw in before bed for lunch at work or in the morning for that night's dinner.

This recipe calls for two pounds of chicken, also because it was what I had available (three large breasts), but would make a great meal with just one pound, too.

I served this along with brown rice and black beans. Tasty!
