Sharing is Caring and Pan Fried Chicken with Tandoori Masala {RECIPE}


Recipe down below!

I am officially in the final stretch of college part 1,  I see lots of studying and memorizing in my future. I think I am slightly crazy but I am looking into getting a second bachelor’s degree. However this time, I am going to meet with a career counselor before jumping into something I am not 100% sure about.

Anyways, yesterday I got to have some delicious Indian food that was not made by me or my mom! Or takeout…


One of the lovely people at the office I work at brought in a spread of jasmine rice, channa masala, aloo & palak and gobi & peas.

I helped myself. I love that I work at the same place with people who believe that sharing is caring.

Oh and food is the way to my heart.

Pan Fried Chicken with Tandoori Masala Recipe

Similar to Tandoori Chicken Naanwich Recipe

I mainly cook vegetables because I am totally terrified of eating uncooked meat and bones creep me out.


  • Shan Tandoori Masala 1 tbs ( found at your local Indian grocery store, however feel free to replace the masala with chili powder, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice and turmeric 1/2 tsp of each)
  • 1 lb chicken (I prefer boneless)
  • 2tbs yogurt (I used plain non-fat)
  • green cooking papaya
  • little salt
  • olive oil
  • few drops red food coloring


  1. Coat chicken with a marinade of garlic ginger paste, turmeric, salt, and chili powder OR Shan Tandoori Chicken Masala mixed with yogurt and food coloring. *DO in advance*
  2. Chop up green cooking papaya into 5 medium-thick slices


3. Place green cooking papaya inside of the pile of chicken while it is marinating (this makes the chicken tender).

4. Marinate for 2 hours prior to cooking.

5. Lightly pan fry chicken  in olive oil for 30 minutes or until fully cooked.


I think the chicken looks way better with food coloring and it’s not as spicy as it looks!

Since I clearly need some help with my future, I want to be inspired by you. What do you do for a living and why do you enjoy it or hate it?

    Okay this isn’t going to help you at all but I’m totally thinking of getting a second bachelors as well. The only problem is I would have to take out chunks of loans and owe lotsa $$$ back afterwards…
    Also a problem : I feel like I’ll be so old once I’m all set and done!:/ I don’t know…what type of 2nd bachelors are you considering?

      :( I am starting off at a community college which is a lot cheaper so I think that will help! I want a degree in exercise physiology and I have already taken some of the required classes. But we will see! what would yours be in?
