Tandoori Chicken

An all-time favourite, and definitely one of ours, the legendary Tandoori Chicken.


Spice Mix

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1⁄2 tsp black pepper, ground 1⁄4 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground coriander


  • 700g chicken thighs, skin off, bone-in (or 500g boneless)
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1⁄2 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped


  1. Mix the chicken with the ginger, garlic and salt, and leave so the flavours can develop for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the yoghurt with all of the spice mix ingredients and the lime juice.
  2. After 30 minutes, add the chicken to the spiced yoghurt and leave to marinate for 2-3 hours (longer if you can).
  3. When it’s time to cook, fire up your BBQ or grill to around 350c.
  4. Cook the chicken for 8-10 minutes, taking care not to burn. Slice the largest piece in the middle to see if the juices run clear, otherwise grill for a couple of minutes longer.
  5. Serve immediately with a crisp salad, wrap and a further squeeze of lime.
