My husband would eat Indian food every night if he had the choice. So imagine his delight when I announced that I’d be trying out a recipe for Tandoori Chicken for dinner this weekend.

This easy Tandoori chicken recipe is inspired by DreamWorks Pictures’ upcoming movie The Hundred-Foot Journey (yes, yes, I know I shared a #100FootJourney recipe last week, too, but this time second recipe was just too good to NOT share!). The recipe is provided by Disney/DreamWorks, but the photos of the prepared food and opinions are all mine.

The only ingredient I had a hard time finding was the garam masala. I have needed garam masala more than once and have never been able to find it. I searched the Indian food aisle. No luck. I searched the spice aisle. No luck. I did the rest of my shopping, remembered I needed to stock up on 2 other spices, and accidentally stumbled upon garam masala, available only by McCormick (in my store, at least). I did a little happy dance – imagine all of the recipes I can make now that I have garam masala!

The yogurt-spice mixture is not pretty to look at, but smells amazing!

Spread yogurt-spice mixture on chicken. Your hands will get dirty. Roll with it. it’s worth it! Cook as directed.

Generously sprinkle cilantro mixture on top of chicken before serving (take my advice – don’t skip the cilantro!). Delicious!

About The Hundred-Foot Journey:

the 100 foot journey In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.


THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY arrives in theaters everywhere on August 8th!
