Baked Tandoori Chicken



Yum



Hello all... am happy to say that i have successfully crossed 500 Likes in my Facebook Page and here this is my 130th post... feel so happy.

Today my recipe is a favorite dish of many... Chicken Tandoori... just the name itself makes me drool here hope many of you are having the same feel... so let me not waste time and get to the recipe...


Ingredients:

1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp corriander powder
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
salt to taste
6 chicken thighs (you can use any pieces of your choice drumsticks, boneless,breast halves, leg quarters etc)
1 tablespoon oil for basting


Method


In a mixing bowl, stir together all ingredients except the chicken and oil, whisk until you have a thick marinade. 
Take the chicken pieces and make a few horizontal cuts on them and mix in the marinade till all pieces are smeared with the marinade. 
Let it marinate in the fridge for at least for 6 hours or overnight.

Preheat the Philips Airfryer to 180 C.


After you hear the ding on your airfryer, which tells you that it is preheated and ready to cook in, arrange the chicken pieces in the basket and cook for 8 minutes.


After 8 minutes pull out the basket, baste the chicken with a little oil and turn it over. Cook for another 8 minutes.
The chicken should look slightly charred.


Don't worry if you don't have an airfryer alternately you can bake the chicken in a preheated oven at 190C for 20 - 30 minutes. Then turn the chicken over, brush it with some oil and cook it for another 15-20 minutes till the juices run clear.
Increase the oven temperature to the max and cook the chicken for 4 - 5 mins to get the charred effect.

Serve it hot garnished with the onion rings and a few squeezes of lemon juice.
