  • Summary

    This Tandoori Chicken is just as good as what you'd get at an Indian restaurant and it's so easy to make! Chicken thighs are soaked in a creamy, well spiced, yogurt based marinade and then cooked on the grill to get that traditional char.

    Ingredients

    • 3 lbs bone-in or boneless skinless chicken thighs, (trimmed of excess fat)
    • 1 (5.3 oz) container fat-free Greek yogurt ((heaping 1/2 cup))
    • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil or olive oil, (plus more for grilling)
    • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
    • 2 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
    • 2 Tbsp peeled and minced fresh ginger
    • 1 Tbsp paprika ((not smoked!))
    • 2 tsp ground cumin
    • 2 tsp ground coriander
    • 1/2 tsp turmeric
    • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, (add more or less to taste)
    • 1/4 tsp cardamon ((optional))
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • Fresh cilantro, (for garish)
