Chicken tikka is a crowd pleaser and for good cause. It’s packed full of flavor and cooked in a tandoor giving it an amazing clay oven taste. Given that most of us don’t own tandoors, a grill will do’er just fine.
Savory, flavorful, and the perfect kebab for any occasion or season. The best part about chicken tikka is that it’s also easy to make. Just takes a bit of time to marinade and ensure the best flavor.
You can serve the kebab as an appetizer with a side of mint chutney and raita, as dips, or over rice, as a main meal. I like adding a skewer or two over a salad, for a light lunch. I normally marinade a really large batch of chicken and then freeze it for a quick midweek meal option. That’s the nice thing with chicken kebabs versus minced meat kebabs like seekh kebabs.
You just can’t go wrong with tikkas. Even the pickiest eaters like them. They fare well at picnics, parties, and can be easily made in really large batches. They cook quickly, and they look pretty. It’s pretty much all I look for in a kebab. Ha I nearly threw in a comment about that’s pretty much all I look for in my men – pretty, easy, and…ahem…I’ll stop there to keep this shindig family friendly.
