Tandoori Chicken Recipe
This tandoori chicken recipe brings that deliciously savory taste of Indian food right into our own kitchens.
We may not have a tandoor at home but you can still make this delicious chicken recipe very easily in your own oven broiler.
This recipe needs to be started the day before you want to cook it, or at least in the morning, so the flavors of the marinade can permeate the chicken.
Broil the marinated chicken for at least 10 minutes on each side, basting with the juices.
Serve the chicken on a large platter with the lemon wedges place around. Drizzle the lemon on the chicken as desired.

Did You Know?...
Many of us have tried tandoori chicken in Indian restaurants.
It is a favorite Indian food for may westerners.
Baked in a tandoor oven it takes on a wonder charred and smokey flavor.
The recipe calls for garam masala. Garam masala is a mix of spices that is unique to Indian recipes.
Most Indian cooks use it in their curry recipes. Of course you can find garam masala in Indian and some Asian grocery stores, but many regular grocery stores that cater to ethnic populations carry it too, so it shouldn't be too hard to find.
If you don't have it or can't find it you can easily substitute regular curry powder. It may not taste exactly the same but it will be pretty close and still very tasty.
