You don’t need a tandoor to make mouth-watering tandoori chicken
This is a tandoori chicken recipe without the tandoor oven. Instead, I recommend barbecuing it though it can be cooked in the oven. It’s easy and the marinade only takes minutes to make.
One of the most difficult things about barbecuing chicken is the fat from the skin dripping into the coals and flaring up. You shouldn’t have that problem with tandoori chicken as the skin is removed. In Indian cookery, the skin is usually removed which is much better for you and still tastes awesome.
No… you won’t miss the skin. This tandoori chicken recipe is succulent and full of flavour.

I like to serve tandoori chicken with saffron rice and a green salad. I also use it in my restaurant style (BIR) curries instead of using pre-cooked chicken done the curry house way.
Tandoori chicken is the most popular Indian barbecue recipe so enjoy and have fun!
