Hai Friends...Hope you had a great day...
Chicken tikka is a famous dish all over India...Traditionally it is made in tandoor oven,But I made it in normal oven...It still tasted great...
The main thing you should remember is the marination of the chicken...I marinated over night so the flavour went deep into the chicken...You could let it marinate upto 2 days...
You could serve this as it is...But I made Chicken tikka masala with this and served it with rice...I will post it tomorrow...
Hot Chicken Tikka with a squeeze of lemon juice taste like heaven...My mouth is watering went I write this post...Ok anyway here you go for the recipe..
Chicken Breast- ½ kg
Red chilli powder-1 tblspn
Garam masala powder-2 tsp
Turmeric powder-1 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste-2 tblspn
Cardamom powder-1 tsp
Salt to taste
Lemon juice-2 tblspn
Red Food Colouring-a pinch
Lemon juice-2 tblspn
Chat masala powder-1 tsp
Mix the marinate ingrediants together..Now add in chopped chicken pieces and mix well..
Let this marinate in the fridge over night..
Preheat the oven to the highest temperature..Mine went to 250°C(500°F)..
Take the chicken out of the fridge before 30 mins so that it comes to room temperature and cooks evenly
Arrange it in a foil lined baking tray..
Place the tray in the top rack and grill the chicken for 10 mins..
When 10 mins is over take the chicken out and apply the rest of the marinate over this and place it back in the oven..
Now mix lemon juice, oil, chat masala powder together for basing the chicken
After 10 mins,take the tray out...Turn the chicken over and base it with the lemon liquid and place it back in the oven.
Cook the chicken for 10 mins until the chicken is cooked and gets a little chared around the edges..
Remove this and serve hot..
