Chicken Tikka

Chicken Tikka

Sometimes referred to as tandoori chicken, this Indian chicken is marinated in a mixture of yogurt and spices and traditionally cooked in either a clay oven (tandoor) or grilled. We grilled the flavorful chicken on skewers and found it paired well with jasmine or basmati rice.
