About this recipe: This is my adaptation of tandoori chicken. Marinate the chicken overnight for a deliciously flavourful and tender chicken dish.
Absolutely delicious! We didn't use the meat tenderizer and won't in the future. We cut the salt down to 1 tsp. We also used 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper instead of black pepper. Put it in a gallon sized ziplock bag with 5 lb. of organic drumsticks and squeezed the air out, marinated for 6 hours, then grilled it over a charcoal fire. A really nice recipe! - 19 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent! I used boneless skinless breasts for this. The chicken was tender and flavorful. I do have one complaint...too much salt. I would cut the salt by at least half, if not more. It didn't make the chicken too salty, it just made the salt flavor overwhelm the other spices. - 29 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Almost identical to a recipe given me by an Indian friend. I omit the meat tenderizer and use chicken thighs or goat meat(which is traditional). Re marinating: 2 tips. Cut a slash into the chicken pieces, then use your hands to smush the marinade into all crevices. Second tip: Put the chicken and marinade into a ziplock bag for at least overnight in the fridge. I have also frozen the chicken at this point, then thawed out at later time. - 12 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
