Tandoori-Style Chicken

The yogurt marinade makes this chicken extra tender and flavorful. The longer you keep it in the marinade the better, which gives it plenty of make-ahead potential.

Cook's Notes

You'll have more chutney than you need for this menu. Enjoy it alongside pork chops or a firm-fleshed fish like swordfish.

    This has potential. I made it a couple of days ago, and it was bland, but if another reviewer's (Lindsay's) suggestions are followed (adding things such as turmeric, ginger, cayenne, ginger, fennel, paprika) it would be tastier. I was wondering about the reference to the chutney as well. I went on another site and looked for chutney recipes - this needs it, as it needs the flavor.

    I don't think this is tandoori with just the cumin/coriander mix. It should have turmeric, ginger, cayenne, ginger, fennel, paprika in the mix

    What's up with the pic of Martha instead of the chicken? And the cooks note says you will have more chutney than you need, where's the chutney recipe? And lastly, why an oven recipe in July instead of a grilled?

    Pardon my "SNARK" -- BUT -- I know what Martha looks like at this supposedly-decrepit age -- I WANT TO SEE A PHOTO OF THE FINISHED TANDOORI-STYLE CHICKEN or whatever the recipe is for . . . (yes, and I think I dangled my participle too)
