We will cook some Tandoori Chicken today. Sort of. No tandoori oven. But it does not matter. We will use a regular oven. It will be good. Let’s start.
1 chicken breast
1 cup plain yogurt
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons tandoori chicken spices
½ teaspoon crushed green chillies
This recipe is really easy to make. First prepare the chicken breast. Wash it and make some cuts in the meat.
The next thing is preparing the marinade. To do that, mix the yogurt with the salt, the lemon juice, the tandoori chicken spices and the crushed green chillies. If you want, you can prepare your own tandoori chicken spice. Normally, this mixture contains coriander, cumin, chilli, black pepper, cardamom, ginger, bay leaves, fenugreek, garlic, cloves, salt and oil.
Once you have the marinade, put the chicken in it, cover it and let it “work” in the fridge overnight.
The next day prepare an oven tray with a rack on top of it. Remove some marinade from the chicken. Put the chicken breast on the rack and take it to the oven. The oven must be preheated to 375ºF. You should cook the chicken for about 45 minutes. Turn the chicken once so that the cooking is uniform. You can add more marinade.
And then the chicken will be ready. Serve it hot. You can serve it with a salad. Tomato, onion, lettuce, something simple. Enjoy!
