How to Make Baked Marinated

 Tandoori Chicken

  • Prepare the Tandoori marinade

  • Place the chicken in a large glass bowl or container. Depending on the piece of chicken that you have chosen, we remove the skin and make some deep cuts in the meat so that the marinade can better penetrate the chicken. In this case, we chose chopped chicken wings, so it was not necessary to cut them.
  • Squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken and season with salt and pepper.
  • We add the garlic and ginger paste (above we tell you where you can buy it but if we don’t we explain below how to make it at home); 2 tablespoons of sweet paprika and 1 teaspoon of hot paprika; 1 teaspoon of coriander powder; 1 teaspoon of cumin powder; ½ teaspoon of turmeric; ½ teaspoon of Garam Masala; 1 tablespoon of Tandoori Masala and Greek yogurt.
  • Stir well with your hands until a paste is formed with which to marinate the chicken. Once we have the paste, add two tablespoons of oil and stir again.
  • Cover and leave in the fridge overnight if you can, or at least two hours.
