Why are we so taken by food?

Why do we think about certain dishes and immediately salivate? How is it that the smell of popcorn or sugar cookies instantly flood our minds with memories and our hearts with emotion?

It’s because humans are sensuous. No, I’m not calling you sexy. Although, I don’t want to offend anyone… For all I know, you might be extremely sexy. *wink*

Aromatic Indian Grilled Chicken #healthy #paleo #glutenfree

Sensuous meaning “of the senses” or “gratified through the senses.” We drink in every experience, every sensation, through our five senses. They effect how we respond and what we remember. So it’s no wonder that certain foods are associated with our memories.

If food is involved in a moment that is memorable, it actually elevates our emotional tie to that memory.

Making Indian Grilled Chicken #healthy #paleo #glutenfree

When I smell smoked meat, my mind drifts to happy memories of my dad, who often smelled of smokey hickory chips. The taste of butter cookies instantly transports me to childhood days of baking cookies with my mom and sisters. Seared duck breast, hot fudge sundaes with peanuts, and bread pudding all bring back sweet memories of my husband.

On the flip side, the stench of canned tuna takes me back a memory that I’d rather not remember.

Perfect Indian Grilled Chicken #healthy #paleo #glutenfree

One aroma and flavor that always conjures up happy memories is Indian spices. One whiff of cardamom or fenugreek and a flood of color, movement, lights, and sweltering heat wave over me.

Admittedly, this Indian Grilled Chicken recipe is not a replica of a specific dish I ate during the summers I spent in India as a teen. It is more of a nod to old friends, rickshaws, and cooking over open flames.

Vibrant Indian Grilled Chicken #healthy #paleo #glutenfree

I developed this Indian Grilled Chicken recipe for ease and bold flavor. It falls somewhere between a tandoori chicken recipe and a chicken tikka recipe, yet is dairy-free and has less ingredients to deal with. Plus, it’s low in fat and carbs and high in protein!

You don’t have to marinate the chicken in the spices before grilling, making this Indian Grilled Chicken a great mid-week meal. Pair it was fragrant Indian style rice, or skip the carbs and serve it with a salad.

Indian Grilled Chicken is an exciting alternative to plain-jane bbq chicken. This sensuous Indian chicken might cause some memory making of your own!

    Does this ever look good! Wow. Wish I had seen this during the summer, it would’ve been on my grill. Oh well. There is always next summer. Once I bring the grill in (had to do it early because of Hurricane Irene) that is it – end of grilling outdoors for me. Too much of a pain to bring it outdoors again.

    I adore Indian food so much. What flavors!

    Can’t wait to try this recipe out. I’m fast becoming sick of the commonplace bbq chicken, and it’s not even july! this recipe looks to add a little exotic flair to the summer bbq table.

    No grill is complete without a sturdy and reliable probe thermometer ( ) is a great choice. Meat thermometers are even more useful in the backyard than in the kitchen; as grills all have a personality of their own – much more so than ovens.

    Cast Iron? Excellent! I’ve always wanted to try cedar planked salmon, so I like the cedar planks. Also, with 4 boys in the house I thinkg the baseball bat pepper mill would be fun!

    Okay – a popcorn popper for the grill? How cool is that?!!

    I like that nonstick grill mat. That would be super useful. But of course, I’m after the grill pan! :)

    Hey … what’s that salad in your finished product picture? Looks delish.

    Wait a second … 40 minutes?! That’s gotta be indirect heat, yeah? Bone in, 250º, maybe 30-35 minutes. Charcoal grill, coals spread thin, indirect heat, maybe 35-40. But is there something about this spice mop that leans towards slower cooking? For chicken, I lean towards a Bittman-esque method of starting slow and low, maybe 8-10 minutes at 350º, then a minute or two at 450º-500º before flipping and repeating. It’s the reverse of the traditional way of searing red meat, but chicken stays moister when you don’t flame-a-gate it from the get-go. Cheers!

      Hey Steve,

      My grill burns hotter than most, so I grill bone-in chicken for 30-35 minutes, but for most grills, I’d start checking at 35 minutes on medium heat. All grills are different so it’s best to “know your grill”.

    Everyone loves Indian spices. Some folks just don’t realize it yet. Cheers!

    I love sensual food (and I know exactly what you mean, wink wink). Foods that are nostalgic and comforting are the most important in any cook’s repertoire :) I too find a lot of comfort and happiness in Indian flavors, and this simple grilled chicken is a delightful alternative to some more complicated variations. Well done!

    Sommer – this looks wonderful. We love to grill chicken so I will be giving this a try soon!
    I love any of the camping tools – the cast iron grill looks like a life saver :)
    Hope you had a lovely weekend and don’t forget we would love to hear more about your Sommer Summer Adventures in India!

    The CHEF’S PLANET NONSTICK GRILL AND BARBECUE MAT would be wonderful for cooking delicate items, like fish, on the grill.
