Grilled Tandoori Chicken



Ingredients:


  • 5-6 (3.5 to 4 pound) skinless, boneless chicken thigh or breast
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped serrano or jalapeno pepper, stem and seeds removed
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 11/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Direction:


  1. With a fork, prick holes in the chicken pieces. Place the chicken in a plastic bag.

  2. In a blender, combine the oil, onion, garlic, ginger, pepper, and process on high speed to a paste. Add the paprika, salt, cumin, turmeric, coriander, garam masala, and cayenne, and process until well blended. Add the yogurt and lemon juice, and process to a smooth sauce, scraping down the sides to combine all the ingredients. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Turn to coat evenly, rubbing the marinade into the chicken. Close it tightly, refrigerate for at least 4 hours, and up to 24 hours, turning occasionally.

  3. Preheat a grill.

  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Place on the grill and cook for 8 to 10 minutes on the first side. Turn, baste as needed, and cook on the second side for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn and continue cooking, as necessary until the chicken is cooked through, but still tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
