Tandoori Spice Bone In Chicken Thighs


  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 lbs. chicken thigh, skin-on
  • 1 c. Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tbs. lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Make Tandoori spice blend: mix ginger, coriander, paprika, turmeric, cumin, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.

Wash chicken, dry, and trim excess fat. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste.

Add the juice of half a lemon and Greek yogurt to the Tandoori spice blend. Spoon over the chicken and thoroughly cover it. Marinate in a zip lock bag or glass container for at least 4 hours to overnight.

Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Arrange the chicken on the rack skin-side down. Cook for 20 minutes. Flip, and cook another 20 minutes or until cooked through.
