Tandoori Chicken {Fake out MYOTO}

This is "fake out" Tandoori chicken, a popular Indian dish that I love. I don't know about you but I don't have a Tandoor oven at home. I tried to replicate the flavor with spices and zippy Greek yogurt and it turned out pretty good, my fam liked it too. Chicken thighs are traditionally used and it really adds to the flavor. This Indian inspired dish is full of flavor and spices without being too spicy. We served ours with some cool apple slaw and soft whole wheat Naan bread, yum!

Recipe: (Serves 4)
6 oz Non-fat plain Greek yogurt (such as Fage brand)
the zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika (this is different than regular paprika)
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon Garam Masala
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
salt and pepper
1 green apple, peeled and finely julienned
handful cherry tomatoes, quartered
the juice of 1 lime
2 scallions, fined sliced on an angled
1 tablespoon olive oil
Naan bread

1. Preheat oven to 500'F. In a medium bowl mix yogurt, lime zest and spices together until combined

2. Lightly season chicken with salt and pepper then using tongs dip chicken into yogurt mixture on all sides until coated.  Lay coated chicken on a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet.

3. Bake in 500'F oven for 17-20 minutes until blackened and cooked through to an internal temperature of 165'F and juices are clear.
4. For the apple slaw; mix together the julienned apple, tomatoes, lime juice, olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve chicken hot, topped with apple slaw and with some warmed Naan bread or steamed jasmine rice.
