recipe by Rani submitted on 08-06-2008

Chicken Breast/ Boneless Chicken -1 lb(cut into bite size pieces)
Onion, Coloured 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 tblsp
Chicken Tikka
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 atleast 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).
10.Now serve the yummy tikka by sprinkling few drops of lemon juice as a snack.
      - You can also grill the tikka on a stove top griddle if you do not have oven.
      - If you dont have skewers just place it in a baking sheet in the rack above heating rod   (check that it does not get burnt)

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.
