Grilled Tandoori Chicken

I bought a box of "Shan Tandoori Chicken" spice mix from Indian grocery 2 month ago.Actually I forget to post this entry until now . Well,to my surprised hubby like this chicken because it's not spicy at all..These days it's so easy for us to cook anything from anywhere as long as we have the ready mix spices available at home.All I need to cook Tandoori chicken is yogurt ,mix spices,chicken and oven!! Viola!! Tandoori Chicken will be ready in an hour!

10 pieces chicken thigh( or can use any part of chicken) washed and clean.(make 2 deep slits on each piece)
1 pack (50g) tandoori spices mix
1 1/2 cup natural yogurt
8 tbsp lemon sauce
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1:Mix all the above ingredients in a Ziploc bag or container,mix well..Coat the chicken pieces with the marinate and set it aside for 4-5 hours or overnight.Preferably in a refrigerator.(I prefer overnight marinate coz it's have better flavor)
2:Prepare a baking sheet over aluminum foil.Preheat oven to 400 F.Discard the liquid collected,if any.Arrange chicken pieces in a prepared tray and place it in a preheated oven for 45 minutes or until lightly brown.
3:Remove chicken from oven and set side for 10 minutes before serve warm.
