ShareTandoori chicken is an easy and quick meal to prepare. Just marinate the meat overnight or at least for 4 hours and place in the oven. You can also use chicken breast but I think the thigh leg pieces are more tender, moist and flavorful.

  • Whole chicken thighs(deskinned)-4nos
  • Ginger garlic paste -1tbs
  • Full fat thick yogurt-4tbsp
  • Lemon juice-1tsp
  • Red food colour(optional)-1/2tsp
  • Garam masala-1/2tsp
  • Oil-2tbsp
  • Salt-to taste
  • Red chilli powder-2tsp
Clean and skin the chicken of all fat. Make 3-4 deep diagonal incisions into the flesh of each piece using a sharp knife.
Add all ingredients of the marinade and mix together. Spread all the mixture over the chicken. Make sure all the marinade penetrates and coats the chicken. Don't forget to rub the marinade into the slits. Rub evenly.
Refrigerate overnight or for atleast 4 hours

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Remove the chicken 15 minutes before cooking to get it back to room temperature.
Transfer on to the oven grill. Bake for around 10 minutes on each side at 350 degrees F or  until both sides are well roasted. The marinade should totally be absorbed. Brush chicken with oil.
Cook for 2 more minutes.
Garnish with onion, lemon wedges, and cilantro. Accompany with raita and basmati rice.

Bon Appétit!
