Simple, Moist, and Tender Tandoori Chicken

Simple, Moist, and Tender Tandoori Chicken

Cheap chicken breasts become extravagant. It's simple because all you have to do is soak the meat in a plastic bag and then fry it. It won't be dry but tender and moist.

Ingredients: 3 breasts

Chicken breast
1 cup
Curry powder
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
3 tablespoons


1. Poke the chicken with a fork so that the flavor can seep in easily.
2. Add all of the ingredients into a plastic bag and rub it all together from the outside of the bag.
3. Add the chicken and massage the flavors into the meat.
4. Squeeze out the air from the bag and close it. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
5. Dump the chicken and the sauce onto a heat resistant dish. (Caution: Since the chicken is cold, there's a chance that they won't cook all the way through, so please be sure to heat them up in the microwave first)
6. Bake in the toaster oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. (Adjust the time based on the color)
7. (Instead of a toaster oven, you can use a frying pan or the fish grill. You could also use the oven.)
8. Cut into easy to eat slices and arrange on a plate. It's done!
9. In Step 2, you can add grated ginger or garlic, garam masala powder, tabasco sauce etc.
10. The user Yukimeno commented that she bought a bunch of breast meat when it was on sale, made this and stored it in the freezer! What a great idea!
11. Topped on shredded cabbage and mayonnaise. I wrapped it in a tortilla with a tomato. I would also recommend this variation.
12. Variations from users who have commented on this recipe: Mix the sauce with potatoes and bake with the meat. Top with cheese and then bake. Cut into small pieces for a bento lunchbox.
