Tandoori Chicken and Rice Recipe

Indian dishes are extremely rich in flavour. India, being a spice bowl of the world, uses a whole lot of different spices to make its cuisine delectable. One such recipe we are going to share with you is Tandoori Chicken and Rice. 

The delicious savoury dish you can make in a quick and even quicker way if you choose to use pre-made Tandoori Chicken Masala instead of blending all the spices at home. Let’s look at the recipe.

Ingredients for Tandoori Chicken and Rice

  • Chicken breasts – 5 small pieces or 3 large (they will little shrink when cooked)
  • Tandoori Chicken Masala – 4 teaspoon
  • Chopped onion – ½ cup
  • Minced garlic – 1 large clove
  • Butter or olive oil – 1 tablespoon (30 grams)
  • Uncooked white rice – 1 ½ cups (270 grams)
  • Chicken or veggie broth/stock (heated) – 1 ½ cups (375 millilitres)

  2. Take a baking dish about 10 x 15″ / 25 x 35 cm in dimension.
  3. Scatter onion and garlic in a baking dish, put butter in the center, and bake it for 15 minutes (check at 12 minutes; if some bits are browning too much, mix them).
  4. While onions are in the oven, mix Tandoori Chicken Masala and chicken. Sprinkle the powder on both sides.
  5. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Add rice and mix well.
  6. Place the chicken pieces on rice and pour broth or stock around the chicken and rice.
  7. Cover the baking dish with foil.
