Barbecued Indian chicken

    3 hours 30 min

    This is an Indian dish, similar to tandoori chicken but not as spicy. Marinate the chicken for at least 2 to 3 hours, giving the flavours a chance to meld - it will definitely be tastier.

    Not bad, but I found it bland, even after marinating for 3 hours.  -  15 Sep 2008


    This was horrible. I make India food all the time. This doesn't have enough ingrdients to make it work  -  15 Sep 2008


    This was a rather ordinary tasting barbecue chicken. Nothing extraordinary. After marinating for 3 hours I was expecting a real Indian flavour. The flavours did not really come out at all. That's what I get for going for an easier recipe than other Indian type recipes with more ingredients found on this site. Will not make this again.  -  15 Sep 2008
