Recipe by Chef ohio Laura

Got this from 30 min. meals, only wanted the chicken part and not the side so I saved here.

Made this last night and can't wait to make it again. We have friends with their own Tandoori oven and I wanted to try to make tandoori at home in my conventional oven, knowing it would be the same. So close to the real thing! And so easy as well! I made the marinade ahead of time and put the chicken in so when it was time for dinner, just popped chicken into pan and cooked. I served with Indian Spiced Potatoes and a chickpea salad. Can't wait for leftovers for lunch today!
