Without question, the best chicken dish I've made in quite a while. Great flavour, incredibly moist.
This was one of the tastiest Tandoori recipes I have tasted! In the few times I have made this recipe, I have found that the marinade is much better when it sits for a few hours rather than over night.
These things are fabulous! The ingredient list looks a bit intimidating but is well worth the effort. Basically you're just marinating the chicken before you grill it & I let mine sit overnight. Definitely oil the grill but I didn't miss the skin at all and the cilantro, thinly sliced red onion & lime juice at the end makes it even more amazing. I thought about forgoing that step & am so glad I didn't. So full of flavor I never once thought of picking up the salt & pepper I normally seem to add. This is a keeper for sure! Give it a try!
I used chicken leg quarters that I got at the farmer's market, which is quite lean so my chicken turned out a little dry, especially without the skin. The spice flavor was noticeable and a little strong for me but my husband liked it. I would probably make this again but will definitely lessen the cooking time to keep it from drying out and definitely moderate the spices a bit for my taste.
I was initially skeptical about this without the skin. But it turned out quite good. I did it indirect on my kamado-style Primo grill. Browned the butter and stopped the process with a couple of lime squeezes.
Paired it with saffron rice, fresh pineapple and a simple salad. Certainly a keeper!
This was great. Definite keeper. Marinade had a ton of flavor. Ground ginger and garlic gave it nice texture. I thought I was going to miss the chicken skin but didn't at all.
It does burn easily on the grill so watch it carefully. I put it directly over the fire to get some char, but then moved it around. Also, you want to oil the grill well before putting the chicken on as it could stick and you might lose some of the most flavorful part.
I forgot to do the finishing steps with cilantro and lime but didn't miss it. Will try next time.
