How to Make Grilled Rosemary Chicken

If you are looking to spice up your marinade choice for yout next chicken dish try this grilled rosemary chicken recipe. The lime, rosemary and garlic turns your chicken into a light, tasty summer meal.

Place the chicken drummettes in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside.
For the tandoori masala:
In a blender or food processor, combine onion, tomato sauce, yogurt, coriander, garlic, ginger, salt, cumin seeds, garam masala, cayenne pepper (if desired), red food coloring, and whole cloves. Blend to a very smooth paste. (The color should be deep red.)
Pour the tandoori masala over the chicken drummettes; turn chicken drummettes to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange as many of the chicken drummettes on the unheated rack of a broiler pan as will fit in a single layer. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to broil. Broil chicken 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and pieces just start to blacken, turning once halfway through broiling.
Transfer drummettes to a serving platter. Repeat baking and broiling the remaining chicken. If desired, serve with lemon and red onion wedges. Makes 16 servings (about 3 drummettes each).
*Test Kitchen Tip:
If you cannot find chicken drumettes, use 25 chicken wings instead. Cut off and discard tips of chicken wings. Cut wings at joints to form 50 pieces.
