Chicken Tikka Recipe

2-hour 40-Minute recipe Serves 4
Tikka is a popular chicken dish in Indian and Pakistani cuisine. Made up of marinated chicken pieces, this version is skewered and grilled over a high heat until thoroughly cooked. Serve over fragrant jasmine rice. Tip: The overnight marinade will add more flavour, but can be shortened down to two hours if you're short on time.

    Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Meanwhile, soak a few bamboo skewers in hot water for about 20 minutes to prevent burning.

    Thread chicken on skewers, about 4 pieces of chicken per kabob. Brush kabobs with margarine using a pastry brush.

    Oil grill. Barbecue skewers, turning them occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into chicken reads 165°F, about 7 to 8 minutes. Serve over hot cooked basmati rice, if desired.
