Chicken Tikka

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by PetsRus

Over the years I have made many tikka recipes. This is my favorite since a few years. I have combined a recipe from the Master Chefs of India and Pat Chapman. Serve with onion rings, tomatoes and fresh coriander leaves. Marinating time not included.

This was an easy and delicious recipe to prepare. I used thighs which i slashed with a knife so the spices would penetrate. Cooked for 17 to 20 minutes and then turned and cooked the other side for another 20. I added the juice of one lemon to the marinade for a bit of zing. Also added powdered tandoori color for that authentic look! Thanks for sharing!
