Tandoori Chicken #2

This utterly delicious and extremely easy-to-make dish is good with Nan (Indian bread).
Several points are worth noting. You need small pieces of chicken otherwise it is difficult to cook them thoroughly by grilling.
Poussin, cut up, would be excellent, or ask your butcher to cut a larger bird into small pieces.
You can use more marinade if you like.
If using fresh chickens you can freeze the marinaded chicken uncooked.
It freezes well but, as always with poultry, make sure it is thoroughly defrosted before cooking.
