No need for a tandoor… You can make stovetop tandoori chicken easily at home.
I am often asked if you can make tandoori chicken tikka on the hob. The answer is yes! I make stovetop tandoori chicken all the time.
This recipe will get you excellent results and if you use my charcoal smoking method, it will taste deliciously smoky just like what you get at your favourite curry houses.
If you would rather cook in the oven, simply place the marinated chicken on a wire rack in an oven that has been pre-heated to 200c (400f) and roast until cooked through, turning once. 20 minutes is usually enough but please check that the chicken is completely cooked through.
I have used chicken thighs on the bone but you can use any chicken pieces you like. You will need a pan with a tight fitting lid for this recipe if using the charcoal smoke method below.
This stovetop tandoori chicken is great served on its own or used in curries like chicken tikka masala.
