Tandoori Chicken Salad
Tandoori is always a crowd pleaser, and hopefully this version, all filleted and easy peasy, should be as well. Don’t hesitate to use just the marinade recipe for your normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill tandoori chicken, fish, or lamb. Marinate un-filleted cuts of meat as directed and then char the living daylights out of it. So yummy.
