Add the yogurt, ginger, garlic, onion powder, tandoori marsala, salt, and pepper to a mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
Make two diagonal slits in the top of each thigh and place them into the marinate. Mix until the chicken is completely coated. Wrap cling wrap over the top and place in the fridge for at least one hour - overnight is best.
Add the chicken to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon any remaining sauce over the top. Place in a 375 degree F or 190 C preheated oven for 40 - 45 minutes or until the chicken is done.
Remove the chicken from the oven, plate, and garnish with the cilantro. Serve with lemon wedges and sliced onions.
Enjoy your chicken tandoori.
