Grilled tandoori chicken

There are a variety of ways people like to make tandoori chicken. This version was highly recommended to me by my colleague, who brought in tandoori chicken she had made for me to taste it. When I did I absolutely loved it, was the best tandoori chicken I have ever had, so I asked her how she makes it. I will share this easy method with you all, and please feel free to comment how you like to make your tandoori chicken.

I marinated the chicken for 2 nights! Obviously you do not have to leave it that long. One night will be more than sufficient. 
  • Skill level: Super easy
  • Serves: 7+ people
  • Prep time: Over night marination
  • Cooking time: 20-30 mins
What you will need:

2 baby chickens, each cut into 4 pieces (I also added 4 drum sticks)
1 cup plain yoghurt
Juice of half a lemon
3 tbsp vegetable oil
3-4 tbsp tandoori powder (you may wish to increase or decrease this, depending on how hot you like it. My friend recommended the 'laziza' brand of tandoori powder)

How to make:

1) Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix in well together to ensure all the chickens are coated

2) Cover and leave over night to marinate

3) Place in a hot grill, 200 degrees celsius, for 20-30 mins or until the chicken is cooked

I made some tabooli, boiled peas and chips to go alongside the chicken. It was so delicious mashAllah, the flavour from the marinate had gone all the way through the chicken! Plus, it is so simple to make and prepare pre-hand! Enjoy :)
