  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons tandoori masala spice blend
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish


  1. Start by making deep cuts in the chicken breasts to allow the marinade to penetrate.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, tandoori masala, ginger garlic paste, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and salt.
  3. Coat the chicken breasts with the marinade, making sure to get it into the cuts you made earlier. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for the best flavor.
  4. Preheat your grill or oven to high heat. If using a grill, make sure it’s well-oiled to prevent sticking.
  5. Thread the marinated chicken onto skewers and grill for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until fully cooked and charred in spots.
  6. Serve the Mind-Blowing Tandoori Chicken hot, garnished with fresh cilantro leaves.
