Ingredients

    Tandoori Chicken

    6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
    1/2 cup plain n/f greek yogurt
    2 cloves crushed garlic
    4 tsp grated fresh ginger
    1 Tbsp paprika
    1 1/2 tsp cumin
    1 1/2 tsp coriander
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    salt
    black pepper

    Tzaziki sauce

    1 cup n/f fat yogurt ( I like greek, but it's very thick. Reg is fine)
    3 cloves of garlic, crushed to a paste
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 6 inch cucumber, seeded, peeled, and minced
    2 tsp lemon juice
    black pepper

Directions

Put chicken breasts and next 9 ingredients in a large zip-lock bag and massage for a couple of minutes to mix well. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Remove from marinade and grill on a hot grill until juices run clear, turning once. About 15 minutes.

Mix all the ingredients for the tzaziki sauce together in a bowl when you marinate the chicken. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, slice the cooked breast cross-wise into three pieces and spoon about 1/4 cup of the tzaziki across it. Good served with roasted cauliflower and a chopped greek salad w/ balsamic vinaigrette.

    This was amazing!! I started the chicken marinade and made the tzaziki sauce the night before. All I had to do when I got hoem from work was grill the chicken. I served with cous cous and some raw cut veggies, which i also dipped in the tzaziki sauce. Delicious! - 9/24/08

    This is the best Tandoori chicken recipe I have tried. Not only is it healthy, but extremely flavorful. We had couscous and home made roasted bell pepper hummas to go with it and it was a huge success for the whole family. - 3/7/11

    I marinaded the chicken last night and left in the fridge overnight. I made the tzaziki sauce this morning. We grilled tonight. The author says "leftovers are great cold the next day." To that I say "what leftovers?" Wonderful! Used the Tzaziki sauce as salad dressing too. Mmmmm! - 7/18/10

    I had to bake because grill is put away for winter. I used boneless/skinless thighs. It was wonderful and the taziki sauce is one of my favorites. Always looking for different ways to do chicken and this is a keeper! - 1/8/12

    This chicken dish is outstanding. I used another Tziziki recipe though. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly accept instead of grilling, I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes covered and 10 more minutes uncovered. Delicious! - 1/4/12

  • We love tandoori chicken, so were thrilled to find a low carb version. The chicken is delicious even without the sauce, and the tzatziki sauce is so good. The tzatziki is great also as a vegetable dip, especially with 1 - 2 tsp dill added. - 4/10/11

  • This was awesome! Even my kids gobbled it up! I started with a greek salad. Since it's January, I grilled it indoors on my panini press/grill. I served it in whole wheat pitas with some lettuce and tomatoes. I can't wait to have it again. Yummy! - 1/24/11

  • Loved this one. Very tasty - makes a great gyro substitution with some chopped lettuce, tomato, & rice (or do this with leftovers!) I also added a little parsley to the sauce and mixed it in the food processor to make the sauce less chunky. The only problem with the chicken - sticks to the grill! - 5/23/09

    Reply from NANALINDA5355 (9/11/08)
    Yeah, LOL, that's how I originally cooked it, if you have the time. Once I grilled it and that's how it got it's name. My family likes it better grilled. This is how I listed it for my own use. A lot of people don't have a tangine.
