This recipe is perfect for iftar and just in time for Ramadan! This malai chicken tikka is commonly known as reshmi kebab. It is one of my absolute favourite chicken dishes to make. Usually, I serve it alongside naan bread and some salad.
Marination is key in this recipe as it allows the chicken to soak up all the flavours and make the chicken come out so tender, juicy, and succulent. I like to marinate overnight. However, this isn’t always possible. So, try to allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Chicken marinated in spices, yogurt, and cream, then roasted until it’s tender and juicy. The flavor of this tikka is deep, sweet, and spicy—it’s a unique twist on classic Indian chicken tikka masala. You can serve this over rice or cauliflower rice to make it even more healthy.
Chicken tikka is one of the most popular Indian dishes in the world. It is traditionally made with chicken on the bone, marinated in spices, and then cooked in a tandoori oven.
Today, chicken tikka is often made without any bone and is instead made with chicken breast or thigh. This creates a softer texture, which is often preferred by people who aren’t as used to eating bone-in chicken.
