Tandoori Chicken with Herbed Yogurt Sauce

Tandoori actually means to be cooked in a tandoor which is a round, typically clay oven that is heated over wood or charcoal and is used in India for baking bread or roasting meats. In this case tandoori is referring to a blend of spices that give chicken or a fish an authentic flavor. It works well with high heat too so it's perfect for using on the grill.

2 tbs each of the following: onion powder, garlic powder, ginger, and corriander
1 tbs each of the following: cumin, cayenne, tumeric, white pepper and salt
3 lbs chicken breast
3 tbs veg oil
4 pita breads, warmed on the grill

Heat grill to med high. Combine all the spices and oil in a bowl to make a paste. Use more oil if needed. Smear one side of each of the chicken breasts with the paste. Grill 3-4 mins on each side or until slight charred and cooked through. Remove and let rest for 5 mins. Cut lengthwise into 1/2 inch pieces. Serve open faced on a pita with the yogurt and Cucumber Salad

Herbed Yogurt
1 c greek yogurt
1/4 c chopped mint
1/4 c chopped cilantro
Place all ingredients in food processor and process till smooth.
