Chicken Tikka

My Hubby Loves chicken a lot....He always wants me to cook different dishes...
I wanted to try chicken Tikka for a really long time
This recipe gives you the Restaurant Style/Taste Chicken Tikkas

So here it is ...

Recipe Adapted(Modified According to taste) from: Sanjeev Kapoor's Book


Chicken Boneless - 400gms
Chilli Powder - 1 Tbsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1 Tsp
Ginger-Garlic - 1 Tbsp
Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp
Curd/ Yoghurt - 1/2 cup
Olive Oil - 2 Tbsn


Wash and cut the chicken into 1 1/2 inch pieces.

Now Mix Chilli powder, Lemon Juice and salt and marinate the Chicken for about 30mins

Now to the marinated chicken add yoghurt,Ginger Garlic paste, garam masala powder and marinate for 2 Hours

Now thread the chicken into skewers.

Heat Olive Oil in a tawa and place the skewers

Now cook the chicken by turning the skewers at regular intervals such that chicken cooks and browns evenly

When you see evenly browned chicken , Then its ready.

Serve it with a piece of Lemon.


Vegetarians can follow the recipe by replacing Chicken with paneer
If you don't have skewers , directly roast the chicken in the tawa
You can use other oils like sunflower oil too
