easy tandoori chicken on the grill

This is a delicious, easy and healthful Indian style meal that tastes fantastic paired with a gewurztraminer wine. Marinating chicken in yogurt for 24 hours makes the meat very tender and flavorful. I love to serve this with stuffed pattypan squash and seasoned cous cous. A dollop of Greek yogurt, along with a dab of mango chutney, are especially good with this dish.

~easy tandoori chicken on the grill~

4 large, boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup plain yogurt

1/4 cup curry powder

1/4 cup lemon juice

splash of white wine

1 teaspoon Tony Cachare’s Cajun Seasoning

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup toasted coconut

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup slivered almonds

dash of cayenne pepper

Combine yogurt, curry, lemon juice, wine, Cajun seasoning, cumin and garlic powder together in a mixing bowl. Make 3 long slits lengthwise that go half way through each chicken breast. Place chicken breasts in a rectangular cake pan or a large casserole pan. Pour the yogurt sauce over each breast, making sure you get yogurt inside all the slits. Cover tightly and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Grill on high heat 10 to 12 minutes per side. Garnish with toasted coconut, raisins and slivered almonds.

Enjoy!

      Hi Lynn! This chicken was served with a simple Parmesan-Garlic Cous Cous (tossed with salt, pepper and olive oil)… and these yummy little stuffed Pattypan Squash!

      Here’s a link to the pattypan recipe. Enjoy!
