1. Wash chicken and pat it dry with a paper towel. Cut it in 3" to 4" pieces. For best results, make sure that chicken is fully dry (no water dripping). Take all of the above mentioned ingredients (except chicken) in a bowl and mix well.2. Add chicken pieces and make sure to coat marinade to all sides. Transfer all contents to zip lock bag, close the bag and refrigerate for 3-4 hour (preferably overnight). So that chicken absorbs flavor from marinade.
3. Skew chicken pieces and grill on a charcoal grill untill done. You can also use conventional Oven (400 degree F) for about 20-25 minutes or untill fully cooked.
Additional NotesIf cooking in oven, make sure to turn skewers upside down half through cooking.4. Enjoy Chicken Tikaa with your choice of chutney.
