Spicy, perky and very easy to prepare. Served with raita or a mint chutney, these go very well with Naans and Tandoori rotis, but taste equally good with a hearty salad and bread rolls. Prep time includes marination time of one hour.

Made this twice now, once in the oven and once cooked it on the barbeque. I did remove the skin and also marinated it longer, up to a day. A very good chicken recipe!
