Tandoori Style Chicken

We eat a lot of chicken because I can almost always find a great deal on it and even during the weeks when the sales are sparse it is generally the one of the cheapest per pound. Because of that I am always on the lookout for new ways to prepare it so it doesn’t get boring. When I found this recipe for Tandoori Chicken on Life as Mom a couple of summers ago I was intrigued but unsure if my family would eat it so I didn’t make it until last summer. I have no idea why I waited so long, it’s juicy and tender with a ton of flavor without being hot.

Easy Italian Grilled Chicken

Easy Italian Grilled Chicken   This is one of the simplest ways to make chicken with a ton of flavor. It contains only four ingredients and can be frozen in the marinade to save even more time. Just place in the fridge the day before to ensure it thaws safely. If you don’t want to grill the chicken or if the weather isn’t cooperating it can be baked or slow cooked.
