I used a bag of leg quarters & cut apart to end up with 6 thighs & 6 legs. There was plenty of marinade for this amount of chicken. This was an easy to use & mild version of tandoori chicken. Pleasant flavor and mustard yellow in color after marinating the full 24 hours. I might cut back on the tumeric slightly next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I really enjoyed your version of Tandoori chicken. Nice and spicy without being overbearing, even DH liked it and he's not normally fond of this type of food.
