      Blech, this was really gross! I followed the recipe to a T and, although the cooking times were right on and the presentation was beautiful, the taste of the chicken was just yucky. At first it tasted chalky but then came this horrible bitter aftertaste after each bite. I can't place which spice gave the bad tastes. It was a struggle to eat for both my husband and myself.

      What a colorful, healthy meal! Very tasty even though I marinated for the bare minimun-- and it's a very quick cook! I took this plate to my taste-tester neighbor who said he ate everything on the plate. I was wanting to try Chiken Tikka and this seemed a less complicated recipe and a more complete meal--and it was. I made minor changes according to what I had. I quartered some whole fresh,juicy, farmers market tomatoes and they roasted up heavenly soft and flavorful with a dash of sea salt. Whole spinach seemed fine in place of baby leaves. (I cook it this way-->rinse and drain the spinach in a colander and cook it in just the amount of water that clings to the leaves, it works well with little excess water). I ate as is; but I'm super tempted to throw this all in a pita pocket too! You could add some this and that's but this recipe can stand on it's own. I did muster up a bit of something of a cucumber dressing. I give 5 stars although I don't know what traditional Tikka tastes like-- I'll definitely make this again and be proud to share this recipe with friends. * Cheers HH#2 !
