Daily Inspiration

This was a really awesome chicken dish. I didn't have tandoori paste, but I did have a tandoori spice mix which I mixed with the yogurt. I marinated the chicken as directed, but instead of pan frying it -- we grilled the chicken instead. I had another cauliflower dish that I wanted to make so I didn't make the cauliflower rice part of the recipe. This turned out really delicious and I will definitely make it again -- and next time I'll make the cauliflower rice.
