Tandoori chicken is a chicken dish  prepared by grilling or barbequeing chicken ,marinated in yogurt and spices, traditionally  in a tandoor oven (a cylindrical clay oven). The dish originated from the Indian subcontinent and is popular in many other parts of the world. Today most people grill it in an oven or through it on the barbeque. For most of the tandoori chicken dishes, you need to marinade this dish overnight, and only do the grilling the next day. This is really a delicious dish if you like Indian food. Also try the spicy prawns.
