- Boneless chicken breasts
- Plain or Greek Yogurt- like Chobani yogurt
- Parsley flakes
- Garlic powder
- Kosher salt
- Black pepper
How to Make
In a large sealable bag or medium bowl, combine the yogurt with the parsley flakes, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Add chicken and toss together to coat the chicken. Seal the bag or cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
Remove from the bag and place the pieces of chicken in a single layer in a lightly sprayed air fryer basket.
Air Fry at 380 degrees F for 8-10 minutes on each side.
Cook until golden brown and the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
- I make this recipe in my Cosori 6.8 quart air fryer. Depending on your air fryer, size and wattages, cooking time may need to be adjusted 1-2 minutes.
- Use a digital meat thermometer to ensure the chicken has reached the internal temperature of 165°F/74°C.
How to Serve
Once the cooking time has passed, you can serve it on a plate with a simple side dish. Don't forget to squeeze fresh lemon juice on top and even add some parmesan cheese.
You can cut it up into chicken pieces and make it for the whole family!
How to Store
Once you cook the chicken, you can store the leftovers in a sealed bag or airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
You can also freeze the cooked chicken in a freezer bag for up to 1 month.
The easiest way to make sure that this tandoor chicken recipe is done cooking all the way is to use a meat thermometer and insert it into the thickest part of the chicken. Once the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, the chicken is done and ready to be pulled.
You can! Boneless chicken thighs would be great. You can also use chicken drumsticks and even bone-in chicken thighs. If you are cooking chicken with bones, be very careful when eating or serving so that no one chokes on them.
Tandoori chicken can be marinated with yogurt, but with different spices, so it's very similar, just different flavors. Yogurt marinade makes the chicken so tender that is goes perfectly with just about anything. Pair it with a side salad, steamed veggies, or even a side of rice.
The one thing that you can be sure of is that this chicken recipe is fast, simple, and loaded with flavor!
