Terrific tandoori chicken

Total time
3 hours, 15 minutes
Yield

Tandoori chicken often forms the main dish of Indian cuisine, as it has since the time of the Moguls. It is usually complemented by some well-prepared naan and it can benefit from a spread of great chutney, for a sweeter tint to this spicy dish. Served with a cold Indian beer, this recipe makes for an outstanding Sunday afternoon barbecue, Indian style.
