Tandoori Spiced Baked Chicken in Yogurt Masala Recipe

Well, when I am sad and tired and overall cranky, I likes to eat the food prepared by my mothers hand, the flavorful easy to make food I grew up eating and these Tandoori Spiced Baked Chicken in Yogurt Masala hit the spot. Neither World’s most expensive dish Nor World’s best restaurant can compete Home Cooked Food by Mothers Hand 🙂

On to today’s recipe!

Tandoori Spiced Baked Chicken 

Today’s recipe is a favorite of me and my family. It’s a revamped version of this tandoori Roast Chicken Recipe which is one of my popular recipes on the blog! Why is it revamped? Well, because this recipe is more of tastiest than the old one and this is my favorite version: the chicken is deliciously spiced with yogurt marination, and the mango chutney served alongside adds fruity, tangy flavor.

To pair with the creamy yogurt, and spices, instead of using bone-in chicken or pieces of chicken breast, My mom used chicken thigh and wings. Chicken thigh is fattier, juicer and much more tender than chicken breast – I’m actually not a fan of chicken breast at all due to how tough and rubbery it is. Chicken thigh releases its juices during the cooking process, which leads to a deeply, beautifully flavored tandoori chicken which literally melts in your mouth – something chicken breast can’t do without extended marination times and slow cooking.

If you have the ingredients on hand and a micro-plane or grater, tandoori chicken wings are so easy to make! Goes great served with Zeera Raita(cumin yogurt dip) or mango chutneylemon wedges and some onion rings.
