Big-Batch Tandoori Chicken

Big-Batch Tandoori Chicken

Big-batch cooking makes dinner planning a breeze. Get into the groove of it with this succulent, not-too-spicy yet flavourful chicken recipe. It’s delicious fresh off the weekend grill with tangy raita, but it’s also versatile enough to use through the week for hot dishes, salads, wraps and pizza — the list of leftover ideas goes on and on (see below). Or for a late-night, I’m-hangry snack, eat a piece of cold chicken out of the fridge, right off the bone. This tandoori-style chicken does it all.

Leftover Ideas

• Make a mini pizza with sauce, mozzarella, tandoori chicken, sweet red pepper and cilantro layered on top of naan.

• Add tandoori chicken to scrambled eggs with sautéed kale or spinach, and top with fruit chutney.

• Serve tandoori chicken dishes with an aromatic off-dry white wine, such as Cave Spring Riesling Dry VQA.
