Who needs a fancy tandoo oven to make great chicken? Heck. Who even knows where to find one? Here’s how to do it in your broiler!


2 pounds chicken, bone-in.  I like chicken thighs and legs.
2 Cups Greek yogurt
1 lemon, juice only
5 cloves garlic, minced
3 inches, fresh ginger, minced
3 Serrano peppers, minced
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon garam masala
1 Teaspoon cumin
1 Teaspoon coriander
1 Teaspoon turmeric
1/2 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper


1) Mince (or chop in a food processor) the garlic, ginger, and peppers until they are a rough paste.

2) Combine paste with yogurt, lemon, oil, and spices.

3) Marinate chicken in yogurt mixture for at least an hour but preferably 4-6 hours.

4) When ready to cook, wipe off excess marinade and lay chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet.

5) You can either grill the chicken on high heat until charred and then move to low/indirect heat or broil for 6-10 minutes on high until charred, then finish cooking in a 350 degree oven.

6) Serve chicken with steamed veggies and/or rice.
