Testy Tandoori Chicken
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 8-10 minutes
  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation Time: 5-40 minutes including marinade
  • 2 cups yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • Juice of a lime
  • Salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Minced cilantro, for garnish
DIRECTIONS
  1. Heat broiler or grill. Combine yogurt, ginger, garlic, paprika, coriander, half the lime juice and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Dredge chicken in yogurt mixture and marinate 5 to 60 minutes, as time allows.
  2. If you're broiling, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier cleanup. Put chicken breasts on pan, underside facing up; reserve marinade that does not cling to breasts. Broil 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Turn chicken, and spoon remaining marinade over. Broil on smooth side another 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Garnish, add remaining lime juice over chicken and serve, spooning the cooked marinade over the meat and, if you're serving it, over rice.
  3. If grilling, cut marinade by half. Cook 3 to 4 minutes a side, until chicken browns and is cooked through, at times brushing with marinade. Garnish, add lime, serve.
