119: Recipe: Tandoori Chicken

This is what we had for dinner tonight.....Tandoori chicken with some raisin and dill rice....absolutely flavorful and sure perks you up on a Monday Night!!

Here is the recipe,

4 skinless chicken thighs
4 chicken legs
¾ tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. paprika
½ tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 cup whole milk plain yogurt
juice of one fresh lime
1 tbsp. ginger garlic paste

With a sharp knife, prick the chicken flesh deeply a couple of times. Put the pieces in a large ziplock freezer bag. Add all the remaining ingredients to the bag and express out most of the air, then seal the top. Massage the bag to mix the ingredients and coat the chicken pieces. Refrigerate the chicken overnight.

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and lightly fry the pieces with the thick marinade clinging to them, in a hot oiled grill pan until dark on one side. Flip and fry until darkened on the other side. Place the chicken pieces in the oven for about 10 – 12 mins.
