Baked Tandoori Chicken

I saw a version of this recipe is a magazine many many years ago. I had never made it, but remember cutting it out, because the ingredients were items that I was not too familiar with. And then I went to culinary school.
One of my fondest memories was meeting and working with a Chef from India. I asked a lot of questions, and he was very kind to share his stories and dishes.
A very flavorful dish, make Tandoori Chicken as an appetizer or entree using larger chicken pieces.
