Tandoori Chicken Tikka | Chicken Tikka | Broiled Chicken Tikka

Who doesn’t love to go out and get spoilt with yummylicious and gorgeous food? That’s fun! Right? I too love to go out to enjoy the food but sometimes the few restaurants disappoint me. I really miss Indian authentic roadside food here in the USA. 😀 I mean who serves sweet goat curry? or a biryani which is nowhere close to biryani? but just a chicken fried rice.  😀 That’s sad and specially when some Indian restaurant does this. 😦 So for me, cooking at home with slow music in the background and a glass of your favorite drink ( for me, it’s a cup of chai) 😀 is a kind of therapy 😀 though not always. 😉
Roasted, Grilled, Oven Baked, or Broiled, give me a plate of any kind, I just love chicken tikkas. 😀 Easy to cook and always a treat for your tummy. Chicken Tikka tastes best when served with mint-coriander chutney and some onion rings. There are many different recipes which you can make using these chicken tikkas. I used them for making Chicken Tikka Biryani. I will try sharing that recipe soon. 😀
The traditional way of cooking chicken tikka is to cook them in a clay tandoor but since I don’t have a tandoor so I used the oven for baking. Though a few weeks back I got a surprise from hubby, a charcoal grill. ❤ It requires assembling so it’s yet to open. 😀 Next time I am going to try that for sure. 😀
