Tandoori chicken is a very popular Indian dish served at many restaurants in America. If you want to try to make some authentic Indian food try out this recipe. Whether you have a romantic dinner planned or want to treat yourself, it’s the best for all occasions. I would recommend pairing it with some warm garlic naan or white rice.
1/2 cup of greek yogurt
1 pound of skinless boneless chicken thighs
1 tbsp ginger paste
1 tbsp garlic paste
¼ cup of mint
Cilantro (for garnish)
2 tbsp tandoori masala
1 tablespoon cumin powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 tbsp chili flakes
½ turmeric (optional)
Salt and pepper
1 lemon (juice and zest)
3 tbsp avocado oil or any other cooking oil
Let's prepare the marinade!
Tips and Alternatives
- If you want to cook the chicken in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 F and place the chicken on a wire rack over a baking sheet. Grill it for 15-20 mins.
- Try not to flip the chicken too many times that can dry out the chicken
- Listen to some music, and follow your heart when you add the spices.
- If you want some extra flavor in the chicken, add a little bit of garam masala.
