Crowd-Pleasing Tandori Chicken

Crowd-Pleasing Tandori Chicken

This is a real crowd-pleaser! The taste is so authentic. The secret is in the curry powder.


Chicken thigh
2 fillets (about 550 g)
★ Curry powder
2 tablespoons
★ Plain yogurt
100 g
★ Lemon juice
1 tablespoon
★ Tomato ketchup
1/2 tablespoon
★ Salt
2 teaspoons
★ Grated onion
30 g (a little less than 1/2 )
★ Garlic (store-bought, ready-to-use tube)
1 cm (1/2 teaspoon)
★ Cooking sake
1 tablespoon


1. Pierce the chicken with a fork in several places, to make it easy for the meat to absorb the seasonings.
2. Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
3. Combine the ★ ingredients to make the seasoning. I use ready-made curry powder.
4. Since curry powder has this many spices, it's all you need!
5. Mix the seasoning well; that's the key to making the meat absorb the flavors.
6. Let the chicken sit in the seasoning for over a day. Mix up the chicken 2 or 3 times while it is sitting.
7. Bake in oven at 200°C for 23 minutes. Adjust the baking time to suit your oven.
