Keto Pulled Tandoori Chicken Recipe

Frozen chicken transformed into saucy, pulled, Tandoori Chicken bathed in a mixture of delicious spices, and garnished with cilantro. It's wonderful served over rice and is incredibly easy to make!

Served on top of rice, it makes a really delicious, flavorful meal that everyone loved – it also made enough for leftovers for the rest of the weekend and once gone… well, requests for me to make it again.
