Marinated Tandoori Grilled Chicken Thighs

Tandoori chicken is one of my favorites at the indian restaurants.  And you can recreate it pretty well on a charcoal grill instead of the traditional tandoor oven (although I have not-so-secret dreams of someday building my own clay oven in the backyard!)

Forget chicken breast- boneless skinless chicken thighs look like white meat, taste better than chicken breasts and are cheaper than even sale priced boneless skinless chicken breast!

Marinate over night:
1.5 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

juice from 1 lemon (approx 3 TB)
2-4 TB rice milk

2 TB ground corriander
2 TB ground cumin
1 tea turmeric
2 tea paprika
1/2 tea chili powder
1 tea salt
1/2 tea garlic powder

After marinating time, grill to perfection.

Serve with mashed potatoes, roasted indian cauliflower, chapati or naan bread or rice.  Make sure to get some cruciferous veggies (like broccoli) to offset the carniogenic effects of bbq-d meat.
