Tandoori Chicken Tikka


Using our method of turning the Big Green Egg into a tandoor oven (“Big Green Tandoor”), I put together this quick recipe to make tandoori chicken tikka for the upcoming Grill Fest in Texarkana, TX.

Ingredients

  • 3.3 lb of chicken tenders
  • 1/2 packet of Shan Tandoori Masala
  • 1/2 packet of Shan Chicken Tikka
  • 3 tablespoons of ghee or any cooking oil
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • Juice from 3 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Ginger paste (optional; use if you really like the flavor of garlic and ginger)

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Marinade chicken with the mixture for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight
  3. Skewer chicken
