How to make delicious indian food, Chicken Tikka

Posted on Updated on

For this week’s video, I hadn’t done anything in cooking for quite awhile so I decided to do some indian food. Chicken Tikka is actually a very simple recipe but the flavor packs an incredible punch! I am not making the sauce from scratch, I decided to use a curry paste, but using these cooking tips will insure that you get a product that is just like what you would find in the restaurant, for sure. Check out the recipe video on my YouTube channel below, and keep reading for ingredients and cooking directions:

Here is what you will need for this recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into thick chunks
  • Chicken Tikka curry paste
  • 1-2 tbsp yogurt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lime juice

To make this simple recipe, start by slicing your chicken breasts into large chunks. You are going to skewer this on sticks before you cook it in the oven so you want the chunks to be nice and large.

Slice the chicken breasts into chunks first and foremost.

Next up, combine in a bowl the curry paste, the yogurt, the olive oil and the lime juice. Mix it up very well into it forms a nice creamy mixture and it looks like it is well blended. I recommend stirring for about a minute or so before it all comes together right. Don’t add too much lime juice, or it will become watery. After the mixture is well blended, cover with wrap and send it into the refrigerator for 3-4 hours or even overnight, if you are making ahead of time.

Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and skewer the chunks onto sticks. Put all the sticks into an oven at 200 degrees celsius for 15-20 minutes.

Remove that cooked chicken from the oven, and remove from the skewers to serve on a plate along side white rice. You could always eat them off the skewers if you want, too! Make sure to check out my YouTube channel and like and subscribe if you enjoyed the content! See you next time!
