Bombay Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
This grilled dinner always turns out moist and tender. The marinade has a Middle Eastern flair, giving the dish a zesty flavor. It makes a beautiful presentation as well. -June Thomas of Chesterton, Indiana

"I have made this recipe a few times. It never disappoints. Moist and flavorful. It stands out from ordinary barbeque sauce."

MY REVIEW

"This is one of my favorite marinade recipes. I followed the recipe exactly. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2013

"This recipe has a great balance of heat and warmth from the spices that is not too overpowering. I used boneless chicken breasts, which turned out really moist and flavorful."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2013

"I was really excited about this recipe. I did not grill it, so maybe that has something to do with the the lack of flavor. Instead, I cooked it in a large electric skillet. I also marinated for about 12 hrs. I might try it as the recipe states next time, but if it does not improve, I will not try it again."
