Microwave tandoori chicken
( SERVES 4 )
I cooked the chicken on a crisping plate in my microwave oven. Alternatively, cook it in a large round shallow dish and sprinkle with black pepper before serving to give it a better colour. Tested in an 800 watt microwave oven.
- Make two shallow slashes in the thick part of each thigh. Place in a shallow baking dish.
- Combine the yoghurt, tandoori paste and seasonings. Pour over the chicken turning the pieces to coat well. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2-8 hours.
- Preheat a browning or crisping plate in the microwave according to the microwave instructions. Place the chicken in a single layer on the plate. Microwave for 4 minutes, turn each chicken thigh over and continue cooking for 3-4 minutes, until cooked. Remove and stand for 1-2 minutes before serving.
- Great served with a crisp salad and steamed rice.
