Tandoori Chicken

Grilled chicken with wonderful spices.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Stir together yogurt, onion, and garlic in a shallow glass dish.
  2. Add lemon juice, cilantro, paprika, cumin, turmeric, ginger, salt, pepper, cinnamon, and cloves.
  3. Add chicken and coat well. Cover and marinate at least 2 hours or over night in the refrigerator.
  4. Preheat oven to 500 °F (260 °C).
  5. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and set it over a foil covered baking sheet. Place the chicken on the prepared rack. (You can also grill these on a barbecue.)
  6. Bake (grill) chicken until brown and no trace of pink remains in the center, about 25 to 30 minutes.
  7. Note: this creates a lot of smoke if you do it in the oven so I recommend you grill it outside.

This was very good but should be cooked on a barbecue. It is very smoky in the oven. Very different taste for chicken and worth the prep time.

I found this recipe excellent. I did cook it on the grill outside (not a lot of smoke) but the flavor was outstanding. Needed to change nothing!

Yum is all I can say! I cooked this chicken outside on my grill and my family loved it!! The yogurt really makes the meat super tender. This will be a regular meal in my house.
