Chicken Tikka, How to Make Chicken Tikka Recipe, Indian Chicken Tikka

Chicken TikkaChicken Tikka is coated with a special blend of spices and cooked in a tandoori oven. If there is any recipe which is available in all Indian restaurants then it’s non-other than Indian chicken tikka, this is because many Indians are masala lovers. Chicken chunks are marinated with the blend of yogurt and other spices which enhance its flavor.

When you eat this recipe with butter naan bread, each bite gives you the flavor of it. Some say it gives you the flavor of pizza.

Tikka means chunks or bits of meat, Indians prefer chicken tikka type because small chunks absorb blend of spices when marinated and give you an authentic flavor. Usually, boneless chicken chunks are baked in traditional clay oven with grill.

I have seen people cooking this recipe in small pots with wooden stick pierced into chicken meat and cooked under red hot coal. In this scenario wooden stick is soaked in water and cooked so that stick is not burned.
