Tandoori ChickenMake on Drop
Tandoori, one of my all time faves, especially if it is well charred. There is just something about a tandoor oven that could almost convert me to get one, but unfortunately they require a lot of effort, so I am having to stick to my normal oven on a very high temperature just now! (SIgh) It is good to know you can make the paste in your blender though isn't it??
Easy, tasty, chicken weeknight dinner sorted. Get the potatoes on or the Naan bread. YUM.
