Tandoori Chicken

Tandoori Chicken

Team Haloodiefoodie's take on an Indian restaurant classic, usually served as a celebratory dish alongside other dishes which makes it perfect for Eid or dawats.
Our version is traditional and is cooked in a Tandoor (Clay oven). However, this recipe can easily be cooked on the BBQ or in the oven.
