Let’s not be shy here. The old roasted chicken routine can become boring. There… I said it. And don’t get me wrong, I do like chicken. Chicken is like the predictable relationship we’ve all had, sure it loves me, sure it’s healthy, sure it would change my tire at 3 am, but is it going to take me to an Indian adventure and spice up my life?! Wait, these Tandoori Chicken Thighs just might.
