Barbequed Tandoori Chicken

2 �½ tsp meat tenderizer
1/3 cup lemon juice

2 cloves of garlic
1 tbsp chopped fresh ginger root
1 tsp ground roasted cumin seeds
�½ tsp ground cardamom
�½ tsp red pepper
1 tsp Tandoori coloring
1/3 cup plain yogurt
Light vegetable oil for basting

This is an easy recipe, but it does have a few steps. Begin by cutting off the chicken’s wings. Then remove the neck bone carefully. If you prefer you can buy already cut chicken that is prepackaged, but you may loose some of the authentic flavor. Next, you will want to quarter your chicken and remove the skin. Prick the chicken thoroughly with a fork. For extra flavor make diagonal slashes all over the chicken for the marinade to soak into.

Place the chicken in a bowl and add the meat tenderizer and lemon juice. You will want to rub this mixture into the chicken for a few minutes.

Next, combine all the ingredients for the marinade. Place in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place the chicken in a large zip loc bag and pour the marinade in. Let it marinade for at least four hours. You can let this marinade overnight if you wish.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. This should take about an hour. Now, you can grill, broil, or roast you chicken!
