Tandoori inspired chicken with avocado Mayo – recipe

I love Indian food. I’m also on a diet. These two things don’t usually mix well for me as I love rice and garlic naan bread! So, taking inspiration from my love of chicken shashlik I decided to attempt my own Indian spiced chicken! My friend Rob came for tea and a catch up and it got a thumbs up from him!

Makes 4 servings


For the chicken

4 chicken breasts, cut into strips

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tbsp curry powder

1tsp ground coriander

1tsp ground cumin

1 tsp salt

4 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tbsp olive oil

For the mayo

One very ripe avocado

2 tbsp light mayo

Juice of half a lime


Mix the lemon juice, curry powder, coriander, cumin, salt, garlic and olive oil together in a bowl. Coat chicken thoroughly, and cover for half an hour to infuse.

Heat the oven to 180°C. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Then turn the oven to ‘grill’ and place at the top of the oven for 5 minutes each side to get that crisp outer coating.

Whilst the chicken is in the oven, smash an avocado in a bowl until smooth. Add in the mayo and lime juice, stir, and add a little salt and pepper to taste.

When the chicken is cooked, sprinkle coriander leaves on top and serve with rice

  1. This looks so nice and the recipe seems so simple, our grill doesn’t work anymore but I suppose I could just leave it in the oven for longer to make sure it’s all cooked thoroughly right? Great post, thanks for sharing your recipes!
