Tandoori Style Chicken on Golden Naan

with a sweetcorn and chilli salsa

The preparation of tandoori chicken involves it being marinated in spiced yoghurt then roasted in an oven known as a tandoor, hence the dish's name. Though this dish may not utilize a clay oven, the deep flavour bestowed by the marinade is definitely there.

Instructions

Cook the Wedges
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel).
  • Pop the wedges onto a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Mix the Marinade
2
  • Meanwhile, add korma paste and half the yoghurt to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add the chicken and toss to coat. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.

TIP: Notice a stronger smell from your chicken? Don’t worry, this is normal due to packaging used to keep it fresh.

Bake the Chicken
3
  • Add the chicken to the pan (reserve the marinade). Cook until browned, 3-4 mins each side.
  • Meanwhile, peel and cut the onion into 2cm wedges. Add the onion to the leftover marinade and toss to coat.
  • Once the chicken is browned, pop it onto a lined baking tray.
  • Place the onion alongside.
  • Bake on the middle shelf of the oven until the chicken is cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Assemble the Salsa
4
  • Meanwhile, roughly chop the tomatoes and place in a separate bowl.
  • Drain and rinse the sweetcorn in a sieve.
  • Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then finely chop.
  • Add the sweetcorn and chilli (use less if you don't like spice) to the bowl with the tomato
  • Halve the lemon. Squeeze the juice of half the lemon into the bowl. Season with salt and pepper, mix well, then set aside.
Make the Raita
5
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • Add the coriander and remaining yoghurt to another bowl. 
  • Stir in a squeeze of lemon juice.
  • Season with salt and pepper, mix together, then set the raita aside.
  • When everything is nearly ready, place the naans on a baking tray. Sprinkle with a little water and pop them on the bottom shelf of the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Transfer the cooked chicken to a chopping board and thinly slice.
  • Share the naans between your plates and top with the tandoori style chicken and onions.
  • Spoon over the raita and the sweet chilli sauce to finish.
  • Serve with the potato wedges and sweetcorn salsa alongside.
