Course Dinner, Gluten Free, Lunch
Servings 4 people


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tandoori seasoning
  • Juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • 4 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 2 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • Salt, to taste
  • Avocado oil spray
  • Fresh lemon wedges, for serving


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, grated ginger, grated garlic, tandoori seasoning, and the juice of one fresh lemon. Mix thoroughly to create the marinade.
  • Place the chicken thighs and breasts in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring they are fully coated. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • While the grill heats up, take the marinated chicken out of the refrigerator to allow it to reach room temperature.
  • Lightly coat the grill grates with avocado oil spray to prevent sticking.
  • Place the chicken thighs and breasts on the grill. Cook the chicken thighs for about 6-8 minutes on each side, and the chicken breasts for about 5-7 minutes on each side. The chicken should be fully cooked with a lovely char on the exterior.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F (74°C).
  • Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let them rest briefly before serving.
  • For the chicken breasts, allow them to rest for a few minutes and then slice them into thin, diagonal pieces.
  • Serve the delectable chicken tandoori with fresh lemon wedges on the side. Squeeze the lemon over the chicken just before savoring to elevate the flavors.
  • Accompany your dish with naan bread, rice, or a crisp salad. Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.
