Tandoori Chicken - Tims Dairy

A fantastic healthy alternative to a Friday Night Takeaway! Once the marinade is on and the bird is in the oven, you can pour yourself a Cobra (not so healthy ?) and forget about the Chicken. One of the first Indian dishes my children enjoyed was tandoori Chicken, its mild but tasty and good fun to eat. I’ve included a recipe for an optional sauce which in my opinion worked so well with the chicken.

I served mine with roast spiced cauliflower, which can be added to the pan 30 minutes before the end.


  • 1 whole Medium Chicken


  • 2 tablespoons Tims Dairy Greek Style Natural Yogurt 
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 thumb sized piece of ginger grated
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 chilli finely chopped (optional)

Optional sauce.


Mix the marinade ingredients together. Smother the chicken in the marinade and season generously.  Roast at 210 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Leave to rest for 20 minutes.

Optional Sauce.

Blitz the ingredients together in a bullet or blender.
