Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Tandoori Chicken Salad

15 minute Tandoori Chicken. This is a great healthy alternative to a Friday night takeaway. I’ve used chicken thighs, coated in a Greek Yogurt based marinade and have served them with a simple cucumber salad. You could also serve with rice and Naan bread for a heartier meal.

Serves: 4

Prep: 10 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 30 minutes
Total:  1hour 40 minutes

Difficulty: easy



1tsp each smoked paprika, ground cumin, ground coriander, Garam Masala, turmeric, mild chilli powder⠀
200g Greek Yogurt⠀
Juice of a lemon⠀
1/2 tsp Maldon salt⠀
3 garlic cloves crushed⠀
10cm piece ginger peeled and finely chopped or grated⠀

1kg boneless, skinless chicken thighs⠀
1 red chilli sliced⠀
1 cucumber peeled into slivers using a potato peeler⠀
3 limes⠀

Combine all the marinade ingredients and coat your chicken thighs with it. They can go in the fridge for several hours or if you’re in a hurry they can be cooked straight away.

Cook the chicken thighs on a barbecue or griddle for 12 minutes turning every minute or so. Add the lime halves flesh side down for 3 minutes. It makes them easier to squeeze but also they taste sweeter.

I’ve served the chicken with a simple cucumber and tomato salad.

Using a potato peeler cut a whole cucumber into strips, squeeze over the juice of a lime and some olive oil and season.
