Cook's notes

To test if the chicken is cooked, pierce the plumpest part of the wing with a skewer, when the skewer is removed press down. If the juices run clear, the chicken is cooked.
The food colouring is optional and not overly bright when cooked like in a restaurant, however it does add a very slight colour.

Tandoori (Indian Barbecued) Chicken

Of all the food cooked in a _tandoor,_the most popular and the best-tasting is chicken. The distinctive flavor, texture, and color of this dish are achieved by a particular yogurt marinade, by the use of tenderizers, a special tandoori coloring, and finally, by being cooked in the Indian clay oven.

The recipe given here is designed for the conventional oven and charcoal grill. (Household-model tandoors are not yet commercially available in the United States.) The results are very much to my satisfaction.

Tandoori Wings

I’m not sure what took me so long in sharing a Tandoori wings recipe because I’ve shared a lot of “tandoori” inspired meals on my blog so far, but you guys are going to be SO glad I finally did!! These wings are SOOO good, and they’re not fried OR marinated for an annoyingly long period of time.

I actually prefer baked wings because they’re super tender and not dried out ! The trick is cooking them covered first, and then uncovering them just for a little bit to crisp them up a bit.

Marinating these wings in yogurt also makes the meat super tender and the tandoori masala gives the wings that great color and a nice smoky flavor ! Just make sure to use full fat whole milk yogurt so the marinade is thick and not watery.

I served these wings with the scallion jalapeño crema from my black bean nachos and legit, it was a PARTY in my mouth!! Not to toot my own horn, but these wings were SO DAMN good. I sat down and most of them right after I was done photographing them!

I think using paneer as a sub for the chicken would also be delicious! Also serving these with some fresh sliced onions, lots of cilantro and a few wedges of lemon is key!!


Step 1

Season chicken wings generously with salt and place in a one-gallon resealable plastic bag.

Step 2

Pulse chiles, ginger, garlic, garam masala, paprika, and 2 cups cilantro in a food processor until finely chopped. Add yogurt and lemon juice and pulse, scraping down sides as necessary, until smooth and well combined. Pour marinade into bag with chicken. Seal bag and turn to evenly coat chicken with marinade. Chill at least 2 hours and up to 8.

Step 3

Let chicken sit at room temperature 1 hour before grilling.

Step 4

Prepare a grill for medium heat oil grate. Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess drip back into bag, and grill, turning every 3–4 minutes, until charred in spots and cooked through, 10–12 minutes total. Transfer to a platter and let rest 5 minutes.

Step 5

Chop remaining ¼ cup cilantro and sprinkle over wings. Serve with lemon wedges alongside.

How would you rate Tandoori Chicken Wings?

Love this recipe! Made these for my family the other night and was a huge hit. Super simple and tasty. I really like the move with the yogurt. I never would have thought about that! Thanks Molly and BA for this delicious Indian treat! Keep em coming!

What the ? Get Off Your High Horse - tandoor is a type of oven and not a specific mix. The term tandoor /tɑːnˈdʊər/ refers to a variety of ovens, the most commonly known is a cylindrical clay or metal oven used in cooking and baking. The tandoor is used for cooking in Southern, Central and Western Asia, as well as in the South Caucasus. The heat for a tandoor was traditionally generated by a charcoal or wood fire, burning within the tandoor itself, thus exposing the food to live-fire, radiant heat cooking, and hot-air, convection cooking, and smoking by the fat and food.

"up to 24 hours"? What?! Any informed recipe-writer or Indian cook knows that a citrus marinade denatures proteins in chicken past about 8 hours, to a point of mush. It becomes ceviche chicken at 24 hours in a citrus bath. Overnight acidic soaking has been debunked over and over. And where's the kasoori methi or Kashmiri red chili or chaat masala or cumin or coriander? You mention garam masala but that alone doesn't constitute a tandoori mix, despite having elements of one. Sure there are variations, but this isn't one. The writer and editor of this recipe are under-informed and discrediting BA's otherwise tempting recipes. Indian dishes and adaptations of them should make BA more often, but please know what you're talking about first.

How to make grilled tandoori chicken wings?

These spicy Indian chicken wings are so simple and easy to make with tons of flavors.

For more flavorful results marinate the chicken for additional hours. Cook the wings on preheated grill until well done on both sides.

You can pair these tandoori chicken wings with homemade mango lassi, grilled tofu tikka, garlic naan bread etc for a perfect Indian menu.

Tandoori Chicken Marinade

Here’s what you need for the Tandoori Chicken Marinade.

Kashmiri Chilli is what gives Tandoori the signature red colour. Tastes like paprika with a bit of spiciness, you’ll need to hunt down an Indian grocery store for this. But don’t worry, paprika is a near perfect flavour sub! The chicken won’t be quite as red but will still have a red hue. You can easily increase the redness with a drop or two of red food colouring.

Recipe Summary

  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 cup oyster sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • ¼ cup gin
  • 2 dashes liquid smoke flavoring
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ pounds chicken wings, separated at joints, tips discarded
  • ¼ cup honey

In a large bowl, mix the teriyaki sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce, ketchup, garlic powder, gin, liquid smoke, and sugar. Place the chicken wings in the bowl, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat the grill for low heat.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange chicken on the grill, and discard the marinade. Grill the chicken wings on one side for 20 minutes, then turn and brush with honey. Continue grilling 25 minutes, or until juices run clear.
