Recipe Overview: Grilled Tandoori Hen with Grilled Mango Chutney


I’m again with a different recipe overview, this just one coming from the folks more than at “Good Housekeeping,” a journal usually found at your great grandmother’s property.  This was the perfect night time to grill outside listed here in Buffalo, NY, as the weatherman is calling for ten inches of snow.

I am 39 yrs outdated.  Up right up until about 6 months in the past, I certainly hated Indian meals.  It’s the oddest matter.  All of a unexpected, I enjoy it.  It is like a change went off somewhere.  Now my pantry is stuffed with all types of special spices.  That’s the matter about cooking Indian meals, it doesn’t glimpse like significantly, but you stop up standing there dumping 20 spices into whatever it is you’re cooking.

Tonight’s dish wasn’t exactly Indian, but a grilled hen recipe with and Indian twist.  Lets glimpse at what we will will need:

  • three tbsp. plain small-excess fat yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1½ tsp. ground cumin
  • 1½ tsp. ground coriander
  • ½ tsp. ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4½ tsp. grated peeled refreshing ginger
  • salt
  • 4 medium bone-in hen breast halves
  • two agency-ripe mangoes
  • 1 tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 compact green onion
  • Cooked Basmati rice (optional)

The initial matter we want to do is make the marinade.  In compact bowl, blend yogurt, paprika, cumin, coriander, red pepper, garlic, 4 teaspoons ginger, and 1/two teaspoon salt right up until it’s awesome and blended. Pour your marinade into big ziplock bag add hen, turning to coat. Seal it, pressing out extra air. Position the bag in the refrigerator for at minimum 1 hour or up to 4 several hours (the extended the better).


Subsequent we want to get the grill warmed up with medium heat. Peel your mangoes and reduce lengthwise.  If you are negative at slicing mangoes, there are loads of YouTube video clips that describe it effortlessly.  Try to make guaranteed the items are as big as feasible so that they are effortlessly turned on the grill.  Position mango items on very hot grill rack and cook dinner about eight minutes or right up until flippantly charred and tender on both sides. Transfer mangoes to slicing board and established apart right up until cool sufficient to touch.  I had a handful of scaled-down items so I grilled the Mango on the greatest foil I could find….


The moment they cool, chop up the grilled mangoes and area in medium bowl. Insert sugar, vinegar, green onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/two teaspoon ginger stir to mix. Tends to make about two cups chutney depending on the dimensions of your mango.  I only applied just one.


Take out hen from marinade.  Position hen on very hot grill rack. Address grill and cook dinner hen 20 to 25 minutes or right up until juices run apparent when thickest component of breast is pierced with idea of knife, turning hen more than as soon as. Position hen on platter and provide with mango chutney and Basmati rice if you like.


This hen was very delicious.  My spouse is not a admirer of Mango so the meal did not stop of currently being that great for her, although she complimented the hen.  I loved the mango chutney as it ended up tasting great put together with the rice and hen.  I’m not totally guaranteed that I would make this once again, but it wasn’t negative to test as soon as.

My 4 calendar year outdated hated it.
