We eat a lot of chicken because I can almost always find a great deal on it and even during the weeks when the sales are sparse it is generally the one of the cheapest per pound. Because of that I am always on the lookout for new ways to prepare it so it doesn’t get boring. When I found this recipe for Tandoori Chicken on Life as Mom a couple of summers ago I was intrigued but unsure if my family would eat it so I didn’t make it until last summer. I have no idea why I waited so long, it’s juicy and tender with a ton of flavor without being hot.
