Chicken Tikka. Succulent, tangy, magical chunks with a careful balance of spices and herbs. Cook under a hot grill, or use a BBQ. Eat as a snack, starter, or use it in a curry. Once you start eating it, it's difficult to stop.

This recipe makes enough Chicken Tikka for approximately 7-8 single portion curries, or can serve 6 people as a generous starter. It freezes well. Less or more can be made by simply scaling the ingredients down or up.

  1. If you don’t fancy getting your hands in there, for domestic quantities, a ziplock bag is a good way to go for massaging marinades 😉

  2. I’m about to do this tonight, is using chicken legs and thighs ok? I just bought a pack that expires today. So I won’t leave them overnight but I’ll give them a good four hours, cook them, and then back in the fridge. Also should I leave the skin on or off do you think?


  3. The best i tryed! Better than Al’s, better than Julian’s! This is going to my curry recepie book! Well done!

  4. This recipe is top notch my good man, I make this every Friday night ready for Saturday, many layers of flavours, I can’t recommend this enough, it’s great on its own or in any other dish you want to make, well played sir!

    1. +MistyRicardo I just wondered, Mark, do you eat it as a starter, and do you make curry with it. This survey will earn you 5 mrck points 😉

  5. Hi Misty, both, I have tried different recipes, and found this to best by far, just yogurt and spices as it should be, no jars or packets, I find them to be a bit salty, keep up the good work matey, Mark aka the shark.

  6. Does the chicken taste/feel significantly different in other dishes when it’s thawed vs fresh?

    1. not really, Rafael. I haven’t noticed much difference at all. Keep it sealed tight in the freezer.

  7. Mr ck , was looking forward to this vid but had to click off it because of all those bloody pain in the arse pop up things to other recipies! one thing at a time please or keep the other plugs to a minimum.
