Tandoori Chicken

We all love grilled food and spending time in our backyard with family & friends. This summer our grill has been put to use at least once a week! This is a very simple version of tandoori chicken with my favorite store bought Shan masala. I keep this masala handy in my pantry for anytime barbecuing.


12-14 chicken drumsticks, skinned
1 packet shan tandoori masala
1/4 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp meat tenderizer (optional)

How it's made:

Wash chicken drumsticks. Pat dry and poke holes with a fork or slit diagonally.

Mix in shan masala with yogurt and meat tenderizer. Pour marinade over the chicken to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Preheat grill. Place chicken on grill and cook for 15 mins on one side.

Turn and baste as needed. Cook until meat is well done.

I tossed in a few mushrooms which was marinated with the same tandoori masala and a few onion rings. It takes less than 5 mins to get grill marks on them.
