Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks with Coriander & Chilli Chutney




I had one lonely packet of drumsticks that needed using up and I fancied something really tasty, so came up with this delicious recipe. This marinade is amazing and would work beautifully on any cut of chicken. For chicken breasts, reduce the cooking time to 20-25 minutes. The green coriander chutney is not necessarily essential but boy did it take this dish to the next level.
