Tandoori Bites ( Chicken stuffed grilled mushroom)

When chicken can be stuffed with mushroom, why not these cute looking mushrooms can be stuffed with chicken!!! This idea leads to my next recipe. Loads of recipes are available online for stuffed mushroom, but this one is totally different, Tandoori Bites. Indian tandoori spices are used for marinating both mushroom and chicken stuffing. Stuffed perfectly and then grilled to give it a chewy yet juicy effect.  This recipe is a perfect blend of Indian & Italian flavors. So let's start our mushroom hunting..
