Vineet Bhatia shows how to make a simple chicken Tikka marinade. This recipe has two stages of marinating the chicken, to help develop flavour. Finely slicing the chicken breast ensures that the marinade permeates all the way through the meat.
The chicken would traditionally be cooked in a clay tandoor oven but at home you could grill, oven bake or even barbecue the chicken and serve with fluffy basmati rice. Serving chicken tikka in a wrap is a great way to enjoy this dish for a casual dinner.
Of course, chicken is not the only ingredient that benefits from a tikka marinade. Paneer tikka makes a great alternative to meat, or apply your marinating skills to a firm fish like monkfish for a memorable dish.
