Tandoori-Spiced Grilled Chicken
An Indian-inspired entrée that will give you a newfound love for chicken halves. They take on the same juiciness and smoky flavor as a whole or spatchcocked bird, but are much easier to move around the grill. A spiced yogurt marinade tenderizes without turning the meat mushy, so you can slather it on well in advance.
For juicy chicken on the bone, keep the indirect heat moderate and consistent. When you move the pieces over direct heat at the end to crisp up the skin, watch them carefully—the yogurt in the marinade can burn.
You can find Indian pickles online at www.kalustyans.com or locally at stores with a South Asian focus; store-bought versions of the mango and coriander chutneys can be found there as well, or in the International section of most major supermarkets.
