Grilled Tandoori Chicken

Prep Time:  20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 cup plain yogurt
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. curry powder
2 tsp.grated fresh ginger root
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp.cayenne pepper


Pierce chicken breasts several times with the tines of a fork and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine yogurt and all the spices and mix well. Add the chicken to the mixture and turn so all the chicken pieces are coated. Cover and chill for at least one hour, or overnight.

When ready to cook, prepare and preheat grill. Remove the chicken from marinade and cook on grill for about 15 minutes until thoroughly cooked, turning once during cooking time. You can also cook the chicken on a dual contact  indoor grill, for 5-7 minutes until thoroughly cooked.

If you want to bake the chicken, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Place the chicken on a foil-lined jelly roll pan (you need the sides to catch the juice) and bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken registers 160 degrees F. Let stand 5 minutes and serve.

Banana Wrap Recipe

I am looking for easy to prepare snacks for my daughter and I have found plenty. What will I do is to post everything here in my blog and tag it as recipe to try. So that way it is just a click and I don't need to open and search again the web just in case I need the recipe.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


Lay the sandwich wrap out and spread peanut butter on it. Peel the banana and lay it on the side edge of the wrap. Roll it up snuggly  but not too tight. If there are ends on the wrap tuck them over. Enjoy!
