    We loved this recipe. I made it for a friend who just had surgery and they raved about it. Very flavorful, tender and healthy, also quick to prepare once it has marinated. It took longer to cook than stated. I followed the recipe exactly and will make this again.

    Yummy! This is a keeper. Cooked a bit longer than the recipe, but that could have been because of my oven. Served with brown rice (couldn't find naan), sauteed spinach w/garlic, and hot mango chutney. My son gave it 2 big thumbs up - will definitely make again.

    Very easy to prepare. Substituted dried ginger since had it on hand. Turned out delicious and juicy. I pound the chicken before marinating which decreases the cooking time even more. It's also a trick I use to get my husband to eat less. He still thinks he's getting a full piece of chicken!

    152 cals for 6 oz chicken breasts, with even a pinch of olive oil and 2% greek yogurt, I believe is inaccurate. With even 0% greek yogurt, this is the nutrition info that's been pretty much the same on different sites: Nutrition Facts Serving Size 0.25 serving (268.4g) Amount Per Serving Calories 267Calories from Fat 44 % Daily Value* Total Fat 4.9g8% Saturated Fat 0.3g2% Cholesterol 83mg28% Sodium 142mg6% Total Carbohydrates 5.8g2% Dietary Fiber 0.7g3% Sugars 4.2g Protein 49.9g 6oz is a big piece of meat. For dieters, this recipe could easily serve 8 instead of 4. Anyway, the chicken was very tender and had a good flavor, although a few more spices added back at the end didn't hurt, but I was concerned that it didn't look very done, but the yogurt was burning on the pan and drying out, so I baked it the rest of the way. However, my breast pieces were thick and hearty, so that may just be my fault. :) Great recipe, though, thanks for posting! :)

    Wonderful! Since my husband was diagnosed with diabetes we have ceased dining out. We always enjoyed our local Indian restaurant but we didn't know the contents of the food and subsequently we could not determine the number of carbohydrates. This recipe was so very good! We will have it many times in the future. With the addition of 1 Tablespoon of Paprika (to add the red Tandoori color) I made the recipe exactly as written. Thank you!

    This was just okay. Not very spicy at all. Mostly bland even though marinated for much longer time. If you want spicy.....oddly enough..."crispy buttermilk chicken" is ten times spicier.

    This is moist but bland. Will not make again.

    This recipe was amazing! My family loved it and requested me to make it again soon! I think some reviewers said it was bland because they didn't look at the serving size. The serving size for this recipe only makes 2 breast of chicken. I used 4 large breast of chicken and doubled the spices of the ingredients and it turned out perfect! It probably came out bland for some because you might have used more chicken then this recipe stated like I did. Try it again doubling the spices or even tripling depending on how much chicken you use. Recipes should also note, increase ingredients when increasing serving sizes.
