I use the marinade below on about 2lbs of chicken. Feel free to use this marinade on whatever piece of chicken meat you like (chicken legs, breast, fillets, wings, chunks) or even if you want to make tandoori vegetable skewers. Its fairly flexible.

So what you'l need

Tandoori Mix 
  • About 200g natural yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tandoori powder
  • 2 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Squeeze of 1 whole lemon
Place all the tandoori mix ingredients into a bowl.  Add the chicken pieces to the mix and make sure to rub it well into the chicken. Ideally it would be good to marinade in the fridge overnight, but if you are stuck for time, leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Now, place the chicken in your baking tray, and cover in foil. Place in a preheated oven (I set it to the highest heat) and bake it for about 20 minutes then remove the foil. Reduce the oven heat to about Gas Mark 6 or 200°C and cook for a further 20 minutes or so until tender. Garnish with fresh chopped coriander. Enjoy!
