Serving Size: Serves 2-4 Ingredients
  • 2 T Cumin Powder
  • 2 tsps Dried Oregano
  • 2 tsps Curry Powder
  • 2 tsps Fenugreek Seeds
  • 2 tsps Salt
  • 2 tsps Chili Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1 Tablespoon Tandoori Paste
  • 4 tsps Garlic (minced)
  • 3 T Canola Oil
  • 3 T Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • 2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • In a bowl, combine all ingredients except the chicken. Mix together thoroughly (see photo below). Pour the bowl's content into a gallon sized ziploc bag.
  • Add your chicken thighs to the ziploc bag, remove all the air from the bag and seal it closed. Using your hands, make sure you move the chicken around in the bag so that all the chicken gets coated in the marinade. Allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 5 hours.
  • Remove the chicken from the fridge about 30 minutes before grilling. Heat up a grill on high, and grill the chicken about 8 minutes per side (shutting the grill while cooking) or until the chicken is cooked through. Allow the chicken to rest 5 minutes before serving.
