Absolutely Fantastic! Even my son liked it, and he is not often fond of Indian spices. We grilled the chicken and it was very tender and crispy. I think I'll try baking it next time, because I will be making this again real soon. Thank you for this recipe!

I am British and KNOW a good tandoori when I eat one, this was fabulous! The chicken was so moist and the flavour was subtle with wonderful dancing flavours on the tongue! I left mine to marinate over night in the fridge. I also used chicken pieces and not a whole chicken for this, as there are only two of us here at present. I served this with a fresh salad and some home-made Indian flat breads, GORGEOUS! Keep up the fight Karen, lots of warm and supportive wishes coming your way.....FT. Made for Prop it Up AND Karen's Cookathon. :-)

Made & reviewed for the Cookathon in Support of kzbhansen. Wow! I think this is just as good as our local restaurant! Delicious, moist chicken that the whole family enjoyed & it's really not all that much work either. Thanks Karen!
