Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori chicken is a very popular Indian chicken dish, made by marinating chicken in yogurt and spices, then roasting it in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven. Variations of this dish have been around for thousands of years - dating as far back as 3,000 BCE. You may not own a tandoor, but you can still enjoy the delights of tandoori chicken in your own home!
