Alice's Tandoori Chicken recipe















2 pounds chicken legs
and thighs
1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil
½ teaspoon food coloring
to taste
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 to 2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 medium onions
1 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon garam masala
½ lemon

Peel skin off chicken pieces. Make several cuts into each piece. Wash off clean with paper towel.

Mix vegetable oil, food coloring, all spices and onion, if desired into yogurt. Marinate chicken with mixture 4 or 5 hours, overnight for best results.

Bake chicken at 400℉ (200℃) for 30 minutes. No need to preheat oven. Keep basting with juice occasionally. If there is excess juice, you may spoon out some.

Broil chicken 2 to 5 minutes toward the end. Sprinkle with Garam Masala. Garnish with lemon slices and few leaves of cilantro (optional).
