Fast Tandoori Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

Although it's not cooked in a Tandoor, it's still chicken marinated in yogurt and spices and grilled. I think this is probably close enough for the home chef looking for something a bit different. Marinating time can be as little as 5 minutes, so it makes for a very quick meal.

i cooked the chicken in a skillet instead of grilling it. it was wonderful, although i only had time to marinate it for about 35mins. i added a generous pinch of garam masala and curry powder to kick up the heat! i served the chicken with some salsa and pineapple pilaf and sauteed curried green apple. yummy!!! thanks erin!
