Restaurant-Style Tandoori Chicken in the Oven!

As a lover of Indian food, I searched and experimented for a long time before finally coming up with this recipe for genuine Indian restaurant-style tandoori chicken that you can make in your own home oven. This recipe was just voted best tandoori chicken in San Francisco by our "completely unbiased" review panel (consisting of several friends who have haunted San Francisco's Indian restaurants with us for the last few years!) Seriously, if you like Tandoori chicken, you are going to love this one -- and it's easy, on top of that... The quantities below make enough marinade for 4 generous servings -- we usually make a package each of 6 drumsticks and 6 thighs, but it would work equally well for a breast and leg quarter each for 4, as well.
