Bukhari Chicken? Recipe?

RodVito | Mar 12, 2009 12:05 AM

I am a Canadian who travels to Saudi Arabia for buisness a few times a year. I clways get excited because I can visit the Turkistan Bukhari restaurants and have the best chicken in the world....IMHO. It is a butterflied chicken, spiced and cooked on BBQ Grill. I have tried to do some research on it, but have come up with surprisingly little.

My driver told me it is Tandoori Chicken, which may be, but the spice mixture it very different from typical Tandoor chicken recipes I have found, as tandoori chicken is red, and Bukhari style chicken is yellow.

also, Tandoori chicken is not from the same region as Turkistan Bukhari.

Can some one please help me out? I am dying to re create this recipe at home for my fiancee!
