Tandoori masala chicken, an exotic proposal for your table

Tandoori chicken masala

Today we set our sights on another culture, india, to cook this tandoori masala chicken that will add a lot of color to the table. A chicken, as you can imagine, richly spiced that is cooked in the oven and is tremendously juicy. Don't you want to try it now?

Don't be scared by the number of spices! There are many yes, but they are all known and easy to obtain in our supermarkets. These mixed with yogurt will be responsible for giving color and flavor to the chicken breasts. To do this, yes, they must rest for several hours in the refrigerator.

This recipe requires some forethought. And in order for the breasts to absorb all the flavors of the yogurt and spices, you will have to have them at least five hours in the refrigerator. You therefore have two options. Either get up early to have them ready for food, or leave them in the refrigerator the night before. Plan it and prepare these breasts!
