Who says we need a barbeque grill for enjoying grilled food? I don’t have a patio nor a barbeque grill. But I enjoy grilled food anytime of the year, whenever I am in mood for some grilled food. I use my oven to grill my meats and vegetables and sometimes I do it on the stove top in a grill pan or a griddle. When I saw this months Monthly Mingle theme Grill It!, hosted by Sig, I was hooray!!! I have at least two entries for this event.
My first entry is Tandoori Chicken, which I already have on my blog. I am reposting the recipe for this event.

- Oven temperatures vary from oven to oven. Make sure you don’t burn the chicken or under cook it.
