Grilled Chicken Tikka recipe

Total servings: 5-6
Pre-Prep time:
Preperation time: 1 1/2 hr
Occasion: Any
Cuisine: Pakistani
Effort: Average
Best for: All
How to serve: Hot


1 kilo chicken
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
Fresh dhuniya leaves (1 bunch)
3-4 green chilies
1 medium onion
1 tsp garam masala
4-5 Whole dried red chilies
Salt according to taste
6 tbsp yogurt
3 tbsp lemon juice


Mix all the spices together.
Put in a blender and make a paste.
Make 4-5 deep cuts on each side of the chicken peices.
This will help it cook better on the inside as well as giving it a better flavour. Coat the peices with the paste and leave to marinate for a few hours preferably overnight in fridge.
Then BBQ or bake in oven.

If you're going to bake it in the oven:

Bake it in a aluminum tray covered with foil for the first 20 minutes at 375 F. Then uncover, turn the chicken over, and cover it up again.
Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
By this time the chicken should be cooked.
Now increase the temp to 450 F and uncover and bake until the top is dry and the cuts that you made have 'opened up'.
Turn over and when it looks done its done!
