Tandoori Chicken Notes

I love Indian food and I REALLY love tandoori chicken. But, not having a 900-degree tandoor oven presented a problem. Or so I thought. Fortunately, The Spice House has this amazing tandoori seasoning that makes it SO easy to make tandoori chicken at home! Moist, tasty, and low-calorie, tandoori chicken is now a new staple in my cooking repertoire.

  • 2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skinned (about 12)
  • 1 cup plain, unsweetened, full-fat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons tandoori seasoning
  • 1 drop of red food coloring (optional, but traditional)
  • juice of 1 medium-sized lemon
  • 1 large onion, sliced
Preparation Instructions

Mix all except onions together in large non-metallic bowl, being sure to coat all chicken pieces in yogurt and seasonings. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F. Line a half-sheet shallow baking pan with foil and place a wire rack on top of that (I used the rack normally used for cooling cookies.) Take chicken out of refrigerator and place on rack, spacing evenly. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, turning once and placing onions on top at that time. This is delicious served with raita and basmati rice!
