Baked Tandoori Chicken

Baked Tandoori Chicken – healthy and delicious Indian flavors you can enjoy right in your home.

I love Indian food and just recently went to an Indian restaurant with my husband. He really enjoyed the tandoori chicken there and I thought I’d attempt to make it home. Now obviously making it at home will never turn out as it does in restaurants, because I don’t have the right oven, but this recipe which I found here, with a couple changes of my own, turned out quite good . You get all the right smells of the Indian flavors as you bake the chicken, which I just love.
