Today lets look at a list of easy dinner recipes from chicken. Chicken tandoori/chicken leg piece tandoori is basically a chicken marinated in yoghurt, citrus, and spices, then boiled or grilled. The exotic name comes from the cylindrical clay oven — or tandoor — in which the easy and tasty dish is traditionally prepared. However, the recipe for this dish is also very simple.
The favorite part of the recipe: the tender chicken is deliciously spiced with extra-crispy skin, and the garlic chutney served alongside adds sweet,juicy tangy flavor. The tasty chicken is best marinated full night but if you’re in a time shortage, a few hours(2-3) will do just fine. Serve with Homemade roti, Basmati Rice pulao with Dried nuts and Almonds or a refreshing raita Mint Salad. Everyone love this one too!
