Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken

Introduction

We order tandoori chicken at work sometimes and I thought it would be a good recipe to make at home since I like it so much. Adjust the cayenne to your tastes. I don't like mine too spicy.

Ingredients

    2 large chicken breasts, no skin or bone
    1tsp Salt
    Lemon Juice, .25 cup
    Yogurt, plain, whole milk, 1 cup (8 fl oz)
    Onions, raw, .5 cup, chopped
    Garlic, 1 clove
    Ginger Root, .5 tsp
    Garam Masala spice, 2 tsp
    Pepper, red or cayenne to taste
    Parsley, dried, 1 tbsp

Directions

Cut the chicken into chunks that will fit on bamboo skewers. Mix up all the other ingredients and add the chicken. Mix it up. Feel free to use lower fat yogurt if you want. I also used some red food colouring for looks. Use fresh cilantro instead of parsley if you want. I don't like cilantro and I only had dry parsley so that's what I used. Put everything in a container with a lid or big baggie and place in the fridge. The longer you marinate the better. Soak your skewers in warm water and then put the chicken on them. In the meantime heat up your grill.

Unless you have your own tandoori oven, it's okay to BBQ or broil the chicken until no longer pink inside. Serve with flat bread, rice, plain yogurt or whatever you like. Salad will do too!
