Grilled Tandoori chicken is Flavorful, spicy, smoky, and savory, with just the right amount of heat from hot chilies. Roasted in a hot oven to a succulent tenderness.
Tandoori Chicken is comfort food to me and has become one of my favorite dishes to make ever since i started cooking. The spices and flavors are reminiscent of the INDIAN cuisine I grew up with. Cumin, coriander seeds, black pepper, cinnamon, clove, bay leaf, garlic, and chilies are just a few ingredients that reminds me of the way it used to be at my native.
Tandoori chicken is a dish prepared by roasting chicken marinated in yogurt and spices in a tandoor (cylindrical clay oven). Since we don’t have a tandoor we will grill this in a microwave oven. It is originated from Mughlai cuisine. We have made this recipe with a few ingredients and managed to keep Indian traditions alive with its amazing taste. It is certainly one of the easiest, simplest and yummiest grilled chicken recipe. As a bonus for my readers, I have also attached recipes of green chutney and spicy onions which goes very well with this grilled chicken.
