Grilled Tandoori Chicken

Published Monday, 11 June, 2012 by Busymum

Much tastier than a doner kebab and cheaper!



  • 500g boneless and skinless chicken breast
  • 1 cup low fat natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp tandoori masala
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic and ginger paste or 4 cloves fresh garlic and one piece of grated ginger
  • 1 tsp olive oil


Ensure chicken is clean and all skin removed

cut deep grooves into the chicken but not all the way through (this will allow the chicken to abosrb the marinade)

mix all the ingredients together and coat the chicken, ensuring the mix is inserted into the grooves

if possible, cover with cling film and leave overnight in the fridge else leave for 30 mins or few hours

place the chicken pieces under a medium heat grill cooking each side for seven minutes each. If you do not have a grill wrap the chicken in tin foil and place in a hot oven at 180 degress for 40 minutes to one hour.
