Learn how to make Tandoor Chicken at home, without traditional clay ovens that restaurants use. You’ll have flavor-packed tandoori chicken that’s fork tender.
Indian Style TAndoori Chicken
Tandoori Chicken is high on my list of favorite Asian Indian dishes. In fact, it is next in line after my all-time fave, Chicken Tikka Masala.
Tandoori chicken also a dish that traditionally requires a clay oven with the capacity to hit 900F. Most of us will have to compromise and tweak things a bit in order to mimic the results of a high heat Tandoor oven.
Thus, I was super excited to find a new Tandoori Chicken recipe that turns out phenomenal flavor, using just my humble little oven. Though this isn’t an exact replica of what we’d get with a true Tandoor Oven chicken, it comes deliciously close…in fact, it’s tastier than many of the Tandoori Chicken versions we’ve eaten.
We all agreed that this recipe is a keeper; anytime the kids happily grub on a new recipe, it automatically goes into rotation!
Healthy yet Rich and Complex in flavor
This Tandoori Chicken is full of the rich and complex flavor that characterizes Asian Indian cuisine. The simple cooking method results in chicken that is both tender and succulent. If you allow the chicken to marinade at least 4 hours, the flavor will soak in beautifully.
My favorite thing about this Tandoori Chicken is how unbelievably easy it is to dish up! The only part that takes planning ahead is the marinade time.
My other favorite thing is how healthy this yummy chicken is. Packed with aromatic spices and whole yogurt, this mouth-watering chicken is absolutely guilt-free indulgence.
Serve with some fluffy Basmati rice and enjoy!
