Chicken Recipes


Tandoori chicken is a subcontinental dish prepared by roasting chicken marinated in yogurt and spices in a tandoor, a cylindrical clay oven.

Tandoori Chicken is a very common dish in most Pakistani restaurants. The meat is marinated and refrigerated overnight. This way the spices are absorbed in the meat. The dish in the house can be cooked in the oven or BBQ grill.
