Tandoori Chicken

This Tandoori Chicken is a super fast weeknight meal that has a perfect delicate combination of Indian spices. The flavors are not overpowering for those that may be new to exploring this type of ethnic cuisine. The yogurt is a super sneaky way to not only add some extra protein and vitamin D but makes the chicken super tender.
