Baked Tandoori Chicken

This is the easiest spicy chicken recipe in the world I kid you not!

  • 4 chicken thighs, this was actually a good part of the chicken to use as it is moister than the breast
  • one cup of natural yogurt
  • a little olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of tandoori spice mix (mine was from
  • salt to taste

  1. simple mix the yogurt and spice mix together with salt, add to the chicken and marinate for 3-4 hours or overnight
  2. bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes
That's it!
The chicken was tender and really flavorsome

My hubby even commented today how good that chicken was, and it was no work at all, this is a keeper for busy Mums around the world.

You could eat it with veggies and rice, or chapatis (that's what I did) or slice it for a salad or sandwiches!

Have a great week everyone



  1. This looks great, and love the fact that it's so easy.

  2. I really like using chicken thighs because have so much flavor. Did you use boneless thighs?

  3. Mmmm...I haven't had tandoori chicken in such a long time. I need to make me some soon.

    Looks delicious!!

  4. Now if only I had a tandoori oven, haha. :) So spicy are we talkin' here? Set you up in flames or pleasantly hot so that it adds to the flavor? I'm a real wimp when it comes to spice. When I was little I wouldn't even eat pepperoni. I'm over that now, for the record.

  5. Rebecca this is just perfect for me. Juggling between home and work at times becomes too much of a burden. And in evenings I just dont feel like cooking anything. This is so easy to make in those moments. My hubby will love it.

  6. Hi Rebecca... the Tandoori dish looks awesome and yummy. I must say though, it looks different from the Tandoori chicken that they sell here at Indian shops. Are there different ways of making a Tandoori chicken?

    The ones I see here are red and grilled in a big tandoori oven.

    But I prefer the dish you made, it looks better. Thanks for the recipe.

    Thanks for visiting my blog too. :D

  13. Hi, Rebecca,
    I loved that you baked the chicken. We have to work on weight loss this year starting before the holidays. This will be great to add to the rotation. -Tien :)

  15. All I need is some rice to go with that!!

  16. You're right - a very easy and tasty recipe to have on hand when you're busy.

  17. Looks absolutely delicious! Albeit a variation on Tandori, in respect to the stuff from a tandoor oven. But WoW all the same, i would love to eat that right now!
