Healthy Tandoori Chicken


Tandoori Chicken1/2 Cup Plain yoghurt (you could use Greek)

2 Garlic Cloves, minced

1 Tbl Fresh Ginger, minced

1 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1/2 tsp Garam Masala

1/4 tsp Coriander

1/4 tsp Salt

3 tsp Lemon Juice

6 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

(This makes plenty of marinade, so I threw in some extra tenderloins with the 6 very large chicken breasts I was using)

Citrus Mayonnaise

3 Tbl Mayonnaise

2 tsp Lemon Juice


Combine the first ten ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.

Spread marinade evenly over both sides of the chicken breasts and place them in your baking dish.

Place in the fridge for an hour to marinate.

Preheat your oven to 180C.

Bake your marinated chicken breasts for approx 35 minutes, or until cooked through.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before slicing.

Combine the mayonnaise and lemon juice and serve as a dipping sauce, or if you are making a burger, spread over the bread, and top with slices of chicken and salad.
