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.

I cooked this with sour cream instead of yogurt and it was amazing! It didn't smoke at all. Not sure how much it changed the flavor, if at all. With sour cream it did not smoke at all and I cooked it in the oven.

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.

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!

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.
