Indian/Tandoori/Yogurt Chicken

I had a sweet recipe for a 24hour marinade for boneless skinless chicken breasts, but i lost it.

It was a tandori style marinade, with a yogurt base, and some other spices and liquids.

Can anyone give me their fav marinade for this style?

will be marinating it for 24 hours then cooking it on a BBQ Pit.

yogurt is a must, to tenderize the meat.

That recipe from Andy M looks just right - I have a notebook with that cuisine but now I don't have to dig through - he's got it! Enjoy, David

Here is the recipe I use:

2 tbsp of freshly grated ginger
2 cups of plain yogurt
juice of 1 lime
3 tsp of freshly roasted and ground cumin
3tsp of freshly roasted and ground corrainder
2 tsp of red chili powder
few pinches of salt (to taste)
1 tsp of red food coloring
1/4 cup of freshly chopped cilantro
1/4 cup of freshly chopped mint

Stir it all together (taste salt) and then pour over chicken. I prefer to marinate this overnight. I normally like to use thighs and legs with this marinade.

You can grill them or cook them in the oven.

It is traditional to serve them with sliced onions that have been grilled and slices of lime.

Good Morning! Can't sleep I guess. A question about yogurt and Indian cooking - have done a tiny bit with some success, at least I thought so. I have trouble with yogurt however - seems like I have that separation problem. How do I fix that? Thanks, David

Hi. Do you mean there's a lot of liquid in the yogurt? Two ways to fix that: 1) you can drain the yogurt before using by putting it in a cheesecloth-lined strainer over a bowl for a few hours, or 2) buy Greek-style yogurt, which is thicker and has less liquid to begin with. I buy it in a Mediterranean market that is part of a local restaurant.

Hope this is helpful.
