Combine the first 13 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, and shake to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours, turning bag occasionally. Remove the chicken from bag, discarding the marinade.
Preheat oven to 500°.
Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt. Bake at 500° for 25 minutes or until done. Serve with lemon wedges; garnish with parsley, if desired.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I made the marinade the day before to make a quick week night meal. Used organic boneless chicken thighs. I did line my baking pan and sprayed it with cooking spray so clean up was a snap. Served with brown basmati rice and a veggie blend. Will make this again as we always have a quart of lowfat plain yogurt in the fridge!
If you're going to barbecue some chicken, you could do worse. Really, it's not bad. However, I've made much better tandoori-style chicken dishes. First off, this dish (and any tandoori chicken recipe) REALLY benefits from being cooked on the grill over roasting in a conventional oven. Secondly, this one was just a a bit lacking in depth and flavor. I much prefer the tandoori and tikka grilled chicken dishes in The Barbecue Bible by Stephen Reichlen.
This was very good. I might actually consider adding more spice next time - this was a good balance, but it needed just a bit more kick. Used Fage fat free yogurt with all chicken thighs and it turned out great. I served with Trader Joe's frozen Garlic Naan and one of TJ's dals over steamed rice. It made for a very easy and tasty meal overall. The husband raved - so it was a success! I would line my pan with foil next time as the yogurt sticks and makes a mess.
