Arrow Moose's Tandoori Chicken

I've been looking at a number of tandoori chicken recipes, which I sort of eyeballed and integrated the best of each, along with my own modifications. The last cook was the best so far, and I'm pretty happy with it. I used chicken thighs for this one, but you can also use cut up pieces, or a smaller halved bird. Either way, I remove the skin and score the meat in crosswise on all surfaces, as is traditionally done in Northern Indian tandoori style chicken. Sorry I didn't take pics of that part, but I do have these:

After marinating the chicken in the tandoori paste/marinade for 8 hours, I fired up the Kingsford Oval with some oak. I then put the thighs on the cool side so they could cook slowly and absorb the oaky smoky goodness:



After about 15 mins, I turned them:



Another 10mins and I moved them closer to the hot side of the grill:



Finally, I moved them to the hot side, turning every few mins so they could get a nice "crust" on the outside:



After I let the chicken rest, I served it with fresh Garlic Naan, cilantro garnish, and fresh homemade mint chutney:



This was some really good Tandoori Chicken, and I will be doing it again soon!

Holy cow that looks amazing! Great job and I'm liking that oval grill you got there. Looks like lots of cooking space.

Al, I LOVE my Kingsford Oval. Too bad they don't make them anymore...I like it even more than my Weber Performer. I've had this for 7 years now and still going strong. anyway, here's a pic of the whole thing:

Thanks! Everytime I see your posts I've wondered what that kingsford oval looks like. That sucks they don't make it I sure wouldn't mind having one in the backyard. Thanks for the pic!

If you ever see one for sale on CL or a yardsale, BUY IT! It is a super reverse searing machine. It circulates heat differently than a weber kettle which makes it ideal for reverse sear, plus the height of the lid permits for larger roasts, beer can chickens etc.

That is some beautiful tandoori! I've tried this a few times as well and I'm still improving the recipe so it would be great to hear what you put into the marinade.
