Tandoori Chicken

Prep: 5 minutes + marinating
Cook: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp turmeric
2 Tbsp water
Mix the last seven ingredients together to make a paste. Rub paste into chicken and let sit 20 minutes. Grill over medium heat until cooked through.
Tips and Tricks
The paste turned out to be more watery, so I just poured it over the chicken and let it sit in a bowl. I also cooked the chicken in a skillet, but if you do this, I'd add a little oil too, because I didn't at first and I set off the smoke detector.
Make It Healthier
Reduce or omit salt.
How Kids Can Help
Measure spices. Pour over chicken.
