  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons tandoori masala
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish


  1. Start by making deep gashes in the chicken breasts to allow the marinade to penetrate.
  2. In a bowl, mix yogurt, tandoori masala, lemon juice, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, ground cumin, and salt to create the marinade.
  3. Coat the chicken breasts with the marinade, making sure they are well covered. Let them marinate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
  4. Preheat your grill or oven to 450°F (230°C).
  5. Place the marinated chicken on a baking sheet or grill rack and cook for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through with a slightly charred exterior.
  6. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with naan bread and mint chutney.
