Do you want Chicken Tikka with that unique British Indian Restaurant quality and taste? Then simply follow the instructions below for success every time...



Preparation Time:

5 minutes plus marinading.

Cooking Time:



4 Boneless Chicken Breast Skinned (400/500g)
  6 tsp (45g) of Mr Huda's Tikka Paste  
  1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil  
  3 tbsp Natural Yoghurt  
  Fresh Coriander  


Stage 1

1. Prick the chicken breasts (both sides) in several places with the tines of a fork and make 3 diagonal slashes on one side of each breast.

2. Put the chicken in a bowl.

3. Add the required amount of Mr Huda's Tikka Paste, oil, yoghurt and some coriander.

4. Mix well in to the chicken (use a disposable glove when mixing to prevent staining your hand).

5. Leave to marinate for at least 6 - 8 hours or overnight in the fridge.

Stage 2

1. When cooking under grill, place on a grill pan (to allow the moisture from the chicken to be kept separate).

2. Baste the chicken with any excess marinade (reserve a little for basting throughout the cooking time).

3. Preheat the grill to high heat, then grill for 15 minutes or until cooked, turning and basting once (try not to over-cook the chicken breasts).

4. Once cooked, garnish with fresh salad, lemon wedges, fresh coriander and serve immediately with mint and tamarind yoghurt sauce.
