PRO TIPS:

To get the best juicy, soft and tender chicken, the process of marination plays an important role. I marinated the chicken overnight to make this chicken tandoori and it turned super duper delicious and yummy.

I have used leg pieces and medium-sized chicken pieces for this recipe, but if you get a large thigh piece, that will be good. Make sure to marinate the chicken for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. That will give you an extraordinary taste for this recipe.

Furthermore, I used store-bought tandoori masala to make tandoori but if you have homemade tandoori masala powder, that is well and good.
