Tandoori Style Chicken

READY IN: 8hrs 40mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Not a true tandoori chicken, which is made in a tandoor oven. This chicken still has all the spice, and is easily made in the home oven.

amazing!!! Changes I made (suggest) -fresh garlic (3 cloves) - 1/2 to 1tsp smoked paprika -use thighs not breast Best Way To cook: -cook over highest heat setting on bbq just to char each side -then cook using indirect heat for about 30+ minutes... closest thing to a tandoor oven taste! ENJOY this great recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together lime juice, yogurt, minced chiles, salt, turmeric, coriander, cumin, ginger, garlic, cayenne, cinnamon, cloves, and 1 tbsp of oil in a mixing bowl.
  2. Cut slits across the meat of chicken and rub spice mixture all over chicken.
  3. Marinate chicken in this mixture for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat the last tbsp of oil in the bottom of a roasting pan and layer chicken pieces in the bottom of pan.
  5. Bake 425F for 35-40 minutes or until chicken is done (you may want to check the chicken about 5-8 minutes before and it may even cook longer than the 40 min, depending on size of pieces).
