Fake-bake Tandoori Chicken

On August 13, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Wendy

Another great recipe from A Little Yumminess. I can’t wait to try this one.


1 lb chicken breasts/thighs, cut into 1 inch cubes
3/4 cup yoghurt (full/lowfat)
1 tbsp ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
pinch (or more) of red chilli powder (optional)
pinch of red food coloring (optional)
salt and pepper to taste


Marinate chicken in all the ingredients for at least 2 hours or overnight (longer is better)
Preheat oven to 350F
Bake for 30-35 minutes and if you like it charred you can leave it under the broiler for 5-10 minutes
Serve on skewers for fun presentation if you desire (no need to bake on skewers – the skewers just make the chicken little fingers friendly)
