Easy Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori chicken with easily available spices - you have no excuse not to make it now, Marta !

  • 4 chicken thighs, with bone (if boneless, should be around 800 g)
  • 1 cup yoghurt (10% fat)
  • Ginger paste - 2 tbsp
  • Garlic paste - 2 tbsp
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili
  • 3 tsp coriander powder
  • 1.5 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt (start with less and add to taste)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Process

    1. Make slits in the chicken.
    2. Mix the yoghurt, lemon and spices. Try the mix to adjust salt.
    3. Marinate the chicken and let sit in the fridge at least 4 hours. Very important to marinate properly in this case since we are using less spices; otherwise the chicken might be bland.
    4. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
    5. Put the chicken on the griddle and a baking sheet underneath to collect any juices.
    6. Cook until dry and crunchy, at least 30 minutes.
    7. Let rest a couple of minutes before serving.
