      Just a thought, but you may be asking for trouble if you use the reserved marinade as a brushed-on finishing sauce, as 10 additional minutes of cooking may not be enough to kill any pesky Salmonella bacteria that may be in that marinade. Play it safe & set aside some marinade when you first make it that the raw chicken never touched.

      Just a quick note about using the reserve marinade, 10 minutes under a hot grill would be quite sufficent to kill all nasties. Very negative comment to make! I haven't tried the recipe but it sounds great! I will give it a go and let you know.

      I've made this twice. First time we grilled it outdoors and the second I used my kewl new indoor grill. Fabulous both times...the aroma as it is cooking is to die for. It made boneless, skinless chicken breasts melt in your mouth tender. This is the ONLY tandoori recipe we use now. Thanks for sharing!
