How to make Tandoori Chicken

  1. .Wash the chicken well. Mix all the ingredients and marinate the chicken pieces and rub it well. Refrigerate it for 8-12 hours.
  2. 2.Remove from fridge atleast and hour before grilling to bring it to room temperature.
  3. 3.Prepare the baking dish with aluminium foil and keep a drip tray on top and keep the chicken pieces with skin over it so the fat present on the meat can melt and drip off. Sprinkle corn flour on top of each piece.
  4. 4.Preheat oven at 400 F bake for 40 minutes-50 minutes until the top turns crisp.Brush olive oil in between if required only as it is already added while marinating. After first 20 minutes turn pieces with tongs sprinkle cornflour.
  5. Discard the fat collecting at the bottom in between or it will start blackening and burning at the bottom so take care if your fire alarm is sensitive. Turn the pieces last 5 minutes back to top upward so it browns well.
  6. 5. Leave it in the oven even after switching off for another 10 minutes if you like dry crispy chicken on the outside and succulent juicy inside.
  7. Serve along with salad, flat bread like chapatti or naan mint coriander chutney or cucumber raita etc.
