Tandoori Chicken I

Tandoori Chicken I

"This recipe was from my sister, Paula, who lived in northern England with her English husband. Indian food and 'takeaways' are very popular there. I serve this dish with rice and a spinach salad with tomato wedges, hard boiled eggs, cucumber slices, feta cheese and black olives. Doubling the marinade will provide plenty of sauce to go over the rice."

  1. Make cuts in the chicken flesh, almost to the bone. Pour 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice over the chicken and rub in the salt.
  2. Combine the tandoori spice, yogurt, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, oil and the vinegar. Coat the chicken with the mixture, rubbing well into the cuts. Place the chicken in a 13x9 inch pan, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake covered chicken at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour. Remove foil the last 15 minutes of baking.

I found the proportion of the Allspice WAY TOO OVERPOWERING for the dish. Luckily, I sampled the sauce before I marinated the chicken in it, so I took some liberties and added a bit more yogurt,...

This was pretty good. I used garam marsala instead of five spice, and chicken wings coz I had no chicken breasts. I slit the wings to get some of the marinate into the meat. I grilled the chicke...

Excellent and easy. Just takes a bit of forthought.

I either failed miserably or like a different region of Indian cooking...

I used a Tandoori spice blend I bought at the grocery store, combined with the lemon juice and yogurt idea of this recipe. I didn't really measure but used about 1-2 cups greek yogurt with prob...

Didn't look, smell or taste like any tandoori chicken I ever had...maybe something was left out of the recipe? Anyway, the leftovers were excellent in Julie's Chicken Salad from this site.
