Tandoori Chicken

_MG_1535 (2)Delicious on the grill or under the broiler, this super simple Tandoori Chicken recipe is great no matter the season!

We serve it as an appetizer for an Indian feast, or as a main, most often with Curried Sweet Potato Salad.

This recipe is much simpler than traditional Tandoori recipes, but is good enough to satisfy my brother and sister-in-law who grew up on my mother-in-law’s famous chicken! The only specialty ingredients required are Garam Masala which you can find in most supermarkets and tandoori powder which can be substituted for a tandoori paste which is more commonly available.

Don’t skimp on the marinating time…other than than, you can’t go wrong.

Enjoy!
