Tandoori Chicken


1 Pound Boneless Chicken

2 Sliced Onions

2 Lemons

5 Whole Green Chilies

3 Tablespoons Onion Paste

½ Teaspoon Ginger Paste

½ Teaspoon Garlic Paste

1 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder

1 Teaspoon Red Chili Powder

1 Teaspoon Coriander Powder

1 Teaspoon Cumin Powder

½ Cup Plain Yogurt

¼ Teaspoon Salt

¼ Tablespoon Cinnamon Powder

¼ Tablespoon Clove Powder

2 Tablespoons Oil

Wash and pat dry the chicken pieces.  Mix onion paste, ginger, garlic, turmeric, red chili powder, coriander, cumin, yogurt, salt, cinnamon, 1 tablespoon oil and clove powder into a medium sized bowl.  Mix well.  In a large bowl place all of the chicken pieces and pour the spice mixture over the chicken.  I like to use the zip lock bags for marinating.  Make certain that all of the chicken pieces are covered with the marinade.  Chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours.  When ready to cook preheat the oven to 450° F.  Oil a large flat baking sheet.  Place the chicken on prepared baking sheet one by one in a single layer.  Bake for 45 minutes.  Turn chicken pieces over and bake for another 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and garnish with sliced onions and sliced lemons.  Serves 4
