Oven baked tandoori chicken is a classic spicy and savory chicken infused with unique flavors and a crispy crust. The secret behind this lip-smacking succulent chicken delicacy is coating the chicken generously with a delightful marinade that is specially prepared. Traditionally, tandoori chicken is cooked in a tandoor but this recipe uses the easily available oven in its place. Tandoori chicken is served both as a starter and as an accompaniment with rice and naan (Indian flatbread).

Tandoor cooked chicken is a traditional dish belonging to the Mughal era. But the modern tandoori chicken is believed to have been invented by Kundan Lal Gujral, a restaurant owner in Peshawar, before the partition of India around 100 years ago. Indian breads have been baked in tandoors for centuries, but Gujral started grilling chicken in tandoors. After the partition of India, Gujral came to Delhi and started a restaurant called “Moti Mahal”. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, loved the tandoori chicken served at Moti Mahal so much that he made it a regular dish served at official banquets. Famous world leaders such as John Kennedy, the Shah of Iran, etc have all loved tandoori chicken!
