The name “Chicken Tikka” starts to make you drool. Chicken tikka is so simple to make and always great for those barbecue’s with the family and friends. It is marinated in a spicy yoghurt mixture and cooked over some coal to give it that delicious smoky flavour. You haven’t visited Kenya if you haven’t had chicken tikka at most of the famous barbecue restaurants around the city. I pair mine with a spicy rice, but chicken tikka can be a meal in itself.
If there is one dish on every Indian restaurant menu, it has to be the chicken tikka masala. This dish consists of perfectly grilled chicken cubes marinated in a flavourful mix of yoghurt and spices mixed into a beautifully cooked curry sauce consisting of a tomato base. Give the dish even more flavour by grilling the chicken over an open flame on a jiko to give it that yummy barbecue taste and aroma. Enjoy this dish with a side of steamed or jeera rice.
Chicken Tikka Masala means a lot of yummy flavours, from spicy to slightly tangy, and combining it with some spaghetti gives you the best Indian-fusion called Chicken Tikka Masala Spaghetti. The chicken tikka recipe I have used below is a cheats recipe that I like to use when I have no time to marinate the chicken and when I am too lazy to get the barbecue going.
