This chicken tikka recipe can be easily prepared in home using the conventional oven. Chicken tikka kebabs are very good as an appetizer or  snack. This can be also used to prepare chicken tikka masala.

Chicken Tikka Kebabs


  • Chicken Breast/ Boneless Chicken -1 lb(cut into bite size pieces)
  • Onion, Colored Bell Peppers,Tomato (diced) - 1 cup (optional)
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Cayenne pepper - 1 tsp
  • Chilli flakes - 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
  • Yogurt - 1 Cup
  • Cashew nuts - 2 tbsp (crushed)
  • Lemon -1/2 (juiced)
  • Cilantro (finely chopped) - 2 tbsp
  • Red color - few drops(optional)
  • Oil - 1 tbsp


  1. Mix all the ingredients under marination except chicken and veggies to form a paste.
  2. Now add the marination to the chicken pieces and veggies to coat it .
  3. Let it marinate for at least 3 hours in refrigerator (increased marination time gives soft chicken with all masala taste).
  4. Take bamboo skewers and soak in water for 1/2 hour. 
  5. Preheat oven to 300F.
  6. Grease a baking dish with few drops of olive oil and spread the marinate chicken pieces and veggie pieces on it.
  7. Bake it for 10 minutes and flip the chicken pieces and again bake for 10 minutes(to evenly cook the chicken)
  8. Now take the baking dish out from oven and place the chicken and veggies in skewers(use paper towel to handle chicken if its very hot).

  9. Now place the skewers in the oven at 350F for another 10 minutes(this gives the flavor and taste like in tandoori).

I was just wondering what's the point of skewering the chicken? Since you're baking it, not grilling it, there's no need for the skewers, no? And does it get crispy on the outside at 350F or is it just soft and no browning?
Do you broil the chicken at all? Thank you. I would love to try this recipe successfully.

Hi Ryvenna, You don't really have to skewer it. It just looks prettier. The kebabs will have a slight brown color. If you want a deeper color, just broil it or bake it in the highest temperature for 1 or 2 minutes.
