Sunday Dinner-Tandoori Chicken with Cilantro, Curry, and Honey Yogurt Sauce

I had a really clever story to go along with this post…

It was all about how much I love Indian Food and could live off warm naan bread for every meal. Clever huh?

But my fingers are having trouble typing what my brain is thinking. Right now there’s a princess movie playing in the background that we’ve now seen 37 times in the past 4 days..yes that’s possible.

My baby, Sweet Pea, has had ย a fever and no sleep the past 3 nights.

Oh, and now the girls are fighting over ย a sippy cup of water. End.Of.The.World.

We’ve also had crazy monsoons and rainstorms followed by 105 degree sunshine. Pretty sure that’s annoying.

But despite a few bumps in the road, I’m happy to say that Sunday is usually my favorite day of the week. We are all together at home, and I love that. Yesterday was even more comforting with the rain and a supper cuddly baby. I can’t complain.

So here’s to bumpy weeks and relaxing Sunday’s…

All you need is some good comfort food and your family sitting around the table to make it your favorite day of the week!

Tandoori Chicken

Cilantro, Curry, & Honey Yogurt Dipping Sauce

These are the spices I used for the recipes, but they are completely adaptable if you don’t have these at home.

Tandoori Masala seasoning can easily be made at home by using THIS RECIPE.

Madras Curry Powder to me is similar to yellow curry powder, so if you have that use it. But taste test as you add a little in here and there.

But I will say that I LOVE these spices and I use them regularly! So if you want you can purchase them here:

Madras Curry Powder:

Tandoori Masala Seasoning:

I served this with coconut rice, steamed broccoli, and naan bread!

Unless of coarse your two year old throws a tantrum because you gave her the green spoon instead of the pink spoon, and decides to punish you by throwing her food all over the floor.

Then it really is the best day of the week. Hands Down.

  1. The tandoori chicken looks amazing! Can’t wait to try the recipe. Also, I am pretty sure I have the napkins that match your dinner plate! So cute!

    • THanks Jillienne!
      What cute napkins! I love these plates, and had no idea there were matching napkins! Probably a good thing, because I most likely would have bought them ;-).

  2. Yum, look so so sooooooo good girl! Sorry for the rough week. I hope this one gets better and sweet pea feels 100% again. Sick babies are no fun ๐Ÿ™

  3. This sounds amazing and so comforting! Hope your baby is feeling better soon!

  4. I hope Sweet Pea feels better soon! And that chicken looks delicious! I will have to try it out soon on a rainy day here at home! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Agreed! I could live off of Naan bread as well! These flavors look awesome. Anything curry and I am sold on it (minus the chicken). Indian flavors are so complex but easier to make at home than it seems.
