  • Salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil

Preparation time: 30 min

Preheat your barbecue at 550 °F

  • Preparation

    Finely mince the garlic.  Squeeze the lime and set the juice aside.

    Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, season with salt and let the chicken marinate for at least one hour.  

  • Cooking the chicken

    Before grilling, remove the chicken from the bowl to get rid of excess sauce.  Season the grill with vegetable oil.  Cook for roughly 3-4 minutes on high, direct heat and then finish cooking on indirect heat if necessary.  The internal temperature of the chicken should reach at least 80°C.

  • Biryani rice

Tandoori chicken should always be cooked on a wood fire or charcoal grill to get that authentic smoky taste but the recipe will work well on a traditional gas BBQ as well or oven.
