Tandoori Chicken Thighs

This is a nice easy recipe for a hot day. I marinaded the chicken for at least four hours – it was nice and tender. Served with some flatbreads, raita and okra.


1 cup plain  Greek yogurt (I used 0 percent fat)

1/4 cup grated onion 

1 1/2 tablespoons grated peeled fresh ginger

1 tablespoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon ground red pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

5 garlic cloves, minced 

8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon canola oil 

sweet peppers (I used a mix of banana and jalapenos)

onion, sliced into large pieces

Mix ingredients (up to cloves). Coat chicken in marinade (I used a plastic bag) and marinate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill, spray with cooking spray. Cook chicken on medium high for about 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Cook your peppers and onions while you’re at it.
