How to Do

Chicken cubes marinated in yogurt and spices, cooked to perfection on skewers in an oven or on the grill! This succulent chicken delicacy is a taste of Indian cuisine that can be a fun and delicious addition to your summer get-together's!

Utensils: food processor, large mixing bowl, skewers

Suggested Pairing: salads, chutney's, rice





Grind together ginger, garlic, dry chillies, black peppercorns, cumin seeds, and cilantro to a coarse paste in a food processor.


STEP 2:  

Transfer the ground mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add yogurt, turmeric powder, garam masala, salt, and combine well.


STEP 3: 

Add the chicken pieces and mix well. Cover the mixing bowl and keep to marinate.


Note: If you are planning to make chicken tikka in advance, keep the bowl in the refrigerator and marinate overnight. 



Gently thread the chicken pieces onto the skewers. While threading, you can alternate with some bell pepper slices.


STEP 5:  (If grilling outdoors, skip the following steps. Happy grilling!)

If cooking indoors, preheat your oven to 200 C (about 400 F). 


STEP 6: 

Place the skewers on the middle rack. Keep a tray on the lowest rack to catch drippings. Roast for about 20 minutes. Turn them over after 10 minutes so the chicken gets cooked evenly.



After 20 minutes or once the chicken is cooked through, switch off and let it still for a couple of minutes.



Take out the chicken tikka. Remove from skewers and put the chicken on a plate. Serve with some fresh salad.



If you are using wooden skewers, you can soak them in water for a few minutes before you start threading the chicken. This will ensure that the skewers won't burn in the oven.


Keeping the chicken to marinate overnight will make the chicken tender and juicy. If you are planning to make chicken tikka in advance, refrigerate it and marinate overnight.
