Tandoori Chicken

Here’s another unique recipe; it’s very good and very healthy! We like this chicken best when it’s grilled on the BBQ, but you can also broil it in the oven.

Tandoori Chicken
2-3 lbs chicken pieces
1 ½ cups plain yogurt
2 T lemon juice
2 T fresh minced ginger
1 T minced garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
½ tsp ground coriander
2 T chopped fresh cilantro

In a bowl, combine yogurt with lemon juice and spices. Add chicken and toss to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Lightly oil grill and preheat for 5-10 minutes (or preheat broiler). Place marinated chicken on grill or broiler pan. Cook chicken 8-10 minutes per side, basting occasionally with juices. Serve over cooked rice sprinkled with cilantro (basmati rice is best!).
