What is Tandoori-Style Chicken?

Tandoori refers to the super-hot clay oven used to cook a lot of Indian bread and meat. You probably do not have a tandoori oven at home, but you can replicate the effect by cooking the chicken directly under a very hot broiler.

Tandoori-Style Chicken Ingredients

Tandoori chicken is made by marinating large chunks of chicken in a sauce made of yogurt and many spices. We will make the yogurt sauce in a blender. Add:

  • 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 small onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 turmeric
  • 1/2 black pepper
  • 1/2 coriander
  • 1/2 cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Blend this together until it is smooth.

Marinate the Chicken

Place the chicken chunks in a heavy-duty sealable bag, then pour the yogurt over them. Get all the air out of the bag and seal it, then place the bag in the refrigerator. You need to let the meat sit for at least eight hours, and the yogurt will make it incredibly tender.

Broil the Chicken

When you are ready to cook, heat up the broiler. Remove the chicken chunks from the yogurt and place them on an oiled broiling pan. Discard the rest of the yogurt. Cook the chicken under the broiler for 12 to 15 minutes. Turn the chicken once while cooking.
