In the spirit of summer and avoiding cooking in a hot kitchen, we wanted to share with you one of our favorite recipes for the grill. Tandoori Chicken is a traditional Indian dish that can easily be translated over from the kitchen to the grill with minimal preparation and maintenance, leaving you more time to enjoy the beautiful summer weather.

Ingredients:

4 servings

1 pound boneless chicken breast (or approximately 4 breast halves)
1 cup plain yogurt
Juice of ½ lemon
1/3 cup of tandoori masala (a traditional Indian spice blend available for purchase at most Indian specialty grocers)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Mango chutney (also available for purchase at most Indian specialty grocers)

 

Directions:

Cut each chicken breast into 4 pieces. Mix the yogurt, lemon juice, tandoori masala, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add the chicken and mix until the chicken is evenly coated. Let marinate for 2 hours. If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 2 hours so they will not burn while grilling. Place 4 pieces of chicken on a skewer, leaving space between each piece. Spray grill with a nonstick pan coating and grill roughly 3 minutes on each side (for a total of 6 minutes). Dip the chicken in mango chutney to your liking and serve with grilled vegetables for a complete meal. Enjoy!
