Tandoori Chicken Bites


 New Year's Eve is just around the corner and if you're hosting a party this is a easy and fun appetizer. You can marinate these Tandoori Chicken Bites in the morning and just broil them off quickly right before the guest arrive.  They go perfectly served with a quick yogurt dipping sauce that you make ahead of time.  Your guest will love each flavorful bite. 
 

Ingredients:
2lbs chicken breast or thigh cut into bite size pieces

Marinade:
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 Tbs Garam Masala Powder
1 Tbs paprika
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
2-3 cloves garlic grated
salt and black pepper

Yogurt Mint Dipping Sauce:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 small handful of minted chopped
1/2 tsp of ground cumin
juice of half a lime or full lime if it's not too juicy
1 clove garlic finely grated
salt to taste
Stir well and allow to chill for a few minutes before serving.



 Directions:

  Marinate chicken with yogurt and spices for 4-8 hours in the fridge, but bring it to room temperature (sit out on counter about 30-45 minutes) before cooking. Place bites onto foil lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or oil. Set oven to broil and broil 6-8 minutes a side until fully cooked (165 internal temp).  Serve with yogurt dipping sauce. Enjoy.

  9. What a coincidence! I just sent you some pics of spices my daughter in law gave me. One is Tandoori Paste and I have chicken thawing to use it. Hope mine turns out as good as yours!
