Tandoori Chicken


Salwaa’s Tandoori Chicken

Make tandoori chicken on your grill! Chicken legs marinated in lemon juice, yogurt, and aromatic spices. Tandoori chicken gets its name from the bell-shaped tandoor clay oven which is also used to make naan, or Indian flatbread. The dish originated from the Indian subcontinent and is popular in many other parts of the world.
