Bombay Barbecued Chicken

Total Time

A few simple spices turn chicken from ordinary to exotic. This recipe is from a 2001 issue of Chatelaine, a Canadian magazine. Enjoy!


  1. Grease grill and preheat barbecue to medium.
  2. In a small bowl, stir oil with curry and garlic powders, ginger, salt and pepper. Using a brush or your fingers, spread spice mixture on both sides of chicken.
  3. Barbecue chicken with lid down until chicken feels springy when pressed, from 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve with rice and raita (see recipe ##482134).

I made this exactly as posted, except I used thin-sliced chicken breasts, which don't take long to cook on the grill at all. I actually ended up marinating the chicken overnight, using a hot curry powder. The chicken was moist and full of flavor. This is so easy to put together. I will be making this again!

We loved this easy, grilled chicken. The spice mixture was so easy to put together and it gave the chicken loads of flavor! Thank you! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks ~ Special

This was a nicely spiced chicken dish, and I'm glad I tried it. Due to inclement weather, I used our indoor grill, so I didn't get great grill marks. However, this was a very moist breast, and the spice was just 'different' enough. Served with rice and a green salad, this made for a tasty dinner from another land! Thanks for sharing, Nif.
