Tandoori chicken

I have decided to share with everyone my favorite recipes. This is an easy recipe to follow and it is very quick to make when you do not have time to make anything too complicated. Enjoy!

1 pound chicken breast cut in small pieces
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
1/2 packet of shaan tandoori chicken spice mix
4 tbsp lowfat yogurt
1 green pepper
1 onion
1/4 cup vegetable oil for cooking(add more if you think necessary)
2 tbsp cilantro

Marinate the chicken breast pieces in a bowl with the yogurt, ginger, garlic, red chili powder, lemon juice, soy sauce, and chicken spice mix. Marinate this for about 25 minutes. Then cut green pepper and slice onion and put it into pot with the oil. Saute the onion and green pepper from about 15 minutes. Then add the marinated chicken and cover and cook for about 30 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. For garnish add some cilantro.

Serve with brown rice or some whole wheat bread. Add some salad on your plate for some extra fiber and a tasty addition.
