Chicken Tikka Recipe | Easy Chicken Tikka recipe with step by step pictures and instructions. Chicken tikka is spicy chicken starter where boneless chicken pieces are marinated with spices and baked, grilled or cooked in stove. I have made tandoori chicken many times. Chicken tikka is similar to tandoori chicken but we use boneless chicken for tikka. We can make chicken tikka masala using leftover tikkas.

Marinate the chicken with spices and curd. For best results allow it to marinate overnight. It can be prepared as starters for party. Serve chicken tikkas with green chutney. You can easily cook this on stove top using pan and use charcoal at the end to get smoky flavor. I grilled these in oven. Adding food color is optional. If you want the bright color as we get in restaurants can add a pinch of food color.

Notes

Baking time will vary depending on size of chicken pieces and oven.

If you are marinating chicken overnight add the vegetables to marination one hour before grilling as onions will leave water if marinated longer. You can cook them on stove top in a pan also if you don't have oven.
