Tandoori Chicken Recipe

Tandoori Chicken

2 1/2 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breasts, thighs, or drumsticks)
16 ounces plain yogurt
1 tablespoon grated ginger root
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup chopped chutney
1 medium cucumber, sliced

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place chicken pieces in a plastic bag set into a deep bowl.

For marinade, combine yogurt, gingerroot, garlic, paprika, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, and cloves. Pour over chicken. Close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning bag occasionally.

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place chicken pieces, bone side down, in center of the cooking grill. Grill 50 to 60 minutes or till chicken is tender and juices run clear, brushing with reserved marinade during the last 10 minutes of grilling time. Serve with chutney and sliced cucumber.
