This is a favourite in our house, even my anti slimming world husband will eat it!! It is a lot of ingredients and does require some preparation in advance but trust me it’s worth it for an amazing syn free meal!
Chicken breasts (1 per person)
1 cup fat free natural yoghurt
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp mixed spice
Add all the spices and lemon juice into the yogurt, mix together then add your chicken breasts.
A quick stir and voila! Magic tandoori sauce
Add chicken to magic tandoori sauce
Then after a couple of hours put your chicken on a grill rack (we don’t have one for some reason, this is the rack for the microwave but it does the job!) on a foil lined baking tray (you need to foil line it because there will be drippy burny bits), spray chicken with fry lite and put in oven on high for 15 mins. KEEP THE LEFT OVER MAGIC TANDOORI POTION(in other words the spiced yogurt mixture) you will need it later.
After 15 mins take the chicken out of
the oven, coat with remaining magic tandoori potion (yogurt mix) and spray with some more fry lite
Before second coat….
After second coat…
After 15 mins your tandoori chicken is done and ready to enjoy! I serve mine with a home made syn free curry sauce (pasata, curry powder and onion powder) brown rice and curried roasted veg (veg, chopped and put in a dish, sprinkle curry powder on top, bake for same time as chicken)
Then you plate it all up and tuck in!!
