Chicken Tikka Recipe

Shop Ingredients:

Chicken Tikka Kebabs in a richly spiced yogurt marinade. Grilled, barbecued or griddled to perfection, they make an easy, family-pleasing dinner!
Serve them simply with rice or chapati, or go all out with a big Indian buffet – I’ve got lots of ideas below!

  • Place the chicken breast pieces into a bowl or freezer bag with the yogurt, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, coriander, turmeric, cumin, paprika, chilli powder, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  • Mix together so that everything is combined, then cover and place in the fridge to marinate for 2-3 hours.
  • If you’re using wooden skewers, place them in water to soak while the chicken is marinating. This will help to prevent them burning during grilling.
  • Remove the marinated chicken from the fridge and thread onto skewers.
  • Brush the chicken with the oil, then place on a griddle plate and cook, turning a couple of times, for 8-10 minutes until cooked through. Alternatively, you can grill (broil) under a grill, or you can barbecue for the same amount of time.
  • Make sure the chicken is cooked by slicing into a larger piece and ensuring it’s no longer pink in the middle.
  • Serve with a sprinkling of freshly chopped coriander.
