Creamy Chicken Tikka

I tried a new tikka version the other day and absolutely loved it. Creamy chicken kabobs with hint of spicy, are succulent, juicy, delicious and low carb!!

Served with a dash of lemon juice and topped with some freshly cracked pepper, this recipe takes under 30 mins of your active time

So what’s the wait? Let’s make!

For 4 skewers you’ll need:

1 large chicken breast cut into bite sized chunks (approx. 250gms)

1/4th cup Greek yogurt

3 tbsp table/fresh cream

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1/2 tsp each of black pepper powder, Garam masala, cumin powder

Salt to taste

1 tbsp corn flour

1 tsp lime juice

2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves – optional


Cut a large chicken breast into bite sized pieces

Now let’s prepare the marinade

In a big bowl, mix together Greek yogurt, salt, ginger garlic paste, and all the above spices

Now add lime juice, chopped coriander, mix well

Add cornflour and mix thoroughly. Don’t get worried if it starts to look too thick as we will now add fresh cream, olive oil. Mix it well to combine. Add fenugreek leaves

Add the chicken chunks to the yogurt cream mixture and marinade for atleast 2-8 hours in the refrigerator (keep covered)

Preheat your oven to 450F

Add the chicken pieces to the skewers and place them on a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Any extra marinade mixture left behind? Please don’t waste, top the mixture on your skewers

Bake in the oven for 20-22 mins or until you see a nice char on the chicken pieces. Make sure to flip halfway at around 10 mins

Once baked, remove the chicken kabobs from the skewers using a fork by sliding the fork down the skewer. Enjoy with a side of you favorite rice/salad/soup or whatever you wish, really!!
