Chicken Tandoori with Broccoli Rice

You can easily make this low-carb tandoori chicken with broccoli rice yourself without ready-made packages or bags. A pack of Knorr or Honig tandoori is handy to use when you're short on time, but often contains unnecessary added sugar and salt.

That's why we made our chicken tandoori from scratch this time. All you need are a few jars of herbs and some basic ingredients. We marinated the chicken in a spicy yogurt marinade and then fried it in the frying pan. The marinade keeps the chicken tender and creates a nice creamy sauce with a spicy taste.

We served the tandoori chicken with a portion of ready-to-eat broccoli rice. As a result, a serving contains only 9.8 g of carbohydrates! Tips: With this recipe you can make tandoori chicken with broccoli rice for two people.

You can scale the recipe to 4 or 6 servings by clicking the scale button in the recipe. You can add extra vegetables to the sauce or replace the broccoli rice with cauliflower rice. The tandoori chicken can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days after preparation.
