This one's not half bad, can't recall where I got it from, sorry.

Tandoori Chicken

1 pint of live natural yogurt
1 Tablespoon Cumin powder
1 Tablespoon garam massala
1 Teaspoon Coriander powder
1 Teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 Teaspoon chilli powder
Juice � lemon
8 cloves garlic - crushed
1 inch grated ginger
Red food colouring (optional)
4 pieces of skinless chicken on the bone
1 Lemon

Serves 2

Mix the spices, colouring (if used), lemon juice and garlic and ginger up into a paste with a little water and stir in well with the yogurt to make a tandoori marinade. Slash the flesh of the chicken and marinate in the marinade for 2-60 hours. Preheat the oven to it's highest heat for at least 20 minutes. Shake off excess marinade and place chicken pieces on a wire rack in the oven. Cook for 20 minutes and check the chicken is cooked by piercing the thickest piece with a skewer, if the juices run clear it's cooked, serve with a wedge of lemon.

It will actually do double that amount of chicken.
