    Oolala's Note:

    Marinate chicken and then bake. From King's Cooking Studio's Twenty Tasteful Years edition. This says "Since you might not be able to install a tandoori oven in your home, try this version. Rubbing the marinade into gashes in the chicken and marinating overnight help to create the tandoori flavor of this most favorite of India's chicken preparations." This is nice served on a bed of sliced tomatoes, onions green pepper and lemon wedges
