Foodie Friday: Grilled Tandoori Chicken

One of my favorite dishes in the world is Tandoori Chicken, it is flavorful, but not overbearingly spicy.

Here's my take on Tandoori Chicken:

Spice Blend:
Chili Powder
Smoked Paprika
3 cloves of Garlic
2 Bay Leaves
5 Springs of Thyme
1/4 cup of Olive Oil

Blend all of the spices into a blender.

Take organic chicken wash in lemon juice and vinegar

Coat the chicken with the Spice Blend until chicken is completely saturated

Take a glass baking pan dice fresh veggies: green peppers, onions and tomatos with olive oil and put the chicken on top of the veggies.

Bake for 40 min until chicken is well done, then for a smoky grilled taste put the chicken on the grill till you see grill marks.

Take the veggies and the pan drippings with mint and 1/3 cup of yogurt and blend well.

When the chicken has grill marks pour the yogurt sauce over the chicken.

Put olive oil on pita bread and toast the bread on the grill.

When the pita is crispy, then remove from the grill

Serve Tandoori chicken with pita bread, salad and lemon water.

Cheers to Tandoori Chicken!
