Tandoori Chicken: Screaming Spicy And Yummy!

Don’t be afraid of spice, dive in with both feet. And don’t let the long list of spice ingredients deter you, I have a secret. I love trying new recipes, but often get discouraged because of the long list of seasonings and spices in a lot of recipes that I just don’t keep on hand.  Here’s my secret… find a store that has seasoning’s and spices in bulk. This way you can get only what you need for new recipes. And that’s  a lot cheaper than buying a jar of Turmeric for $4.99, which you may end up not liking.  I think that I spent about 2 bucks, if that, on all the spices in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3 (8-ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 pita breads, warmed on the grill
  • Tomato Jam, recipe follows
  • Herbed Yogurt, recipe follows

Directions

Heat grillpan to medium-high. Combine all spices and the oil in a medium bowl to make a paste. Rub a thin layer of the spice paste onto 1 side of each chicken breast. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until slightly charred and just cooked through. Remove from the grillpan, let rest 5 minutes, and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices. Serve openface on pitas: the chicken slices and a drizzle of Herbed Yogurt.

*Herbed Yogurt:

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Refrigerate if not using immediately.

*My Ashley made the Herbed Yogurt and felt that it needed garlic and a splash of lemon. It was very tasty.
