Low Fat Chicken tikka

bg_ctikka ctikka

Chicken marinated in yogurt and spices and made into tikkas need not be heavy and high in calorie.

This chicken tikka is grilled and marinated in low fat yogurt for a healthy meal.


Chicken Breast– ½ kg

Fat free plain yogurt– 2 tbsp

Ginger garlic paste – 2 tsp

Cumin seeds – ½ tsp

Chili powder1 tsp

Garam masala – ½ tsp

Turmeric – 1 tsp

Salt – as per taste

Vinegar – 1 tsp

Soya sauce – 1 tsp

Green chili and coriander leaves paste – 2 tsp



Chop boneless chicken to uniform cubes.

Prepare marinade with ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, chili powder, salt, yogurt, soya sauce, vinegar and green chili coriander paste.(You can also add some chicken masala or lollypop masala for added flavor)

Dip the chicken pieces in marinade, mix well.

Keep it aside for 1 to 2 hrs.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees C. Line a roasting tin with aluminum foil (this will help to maintain the high level of temperature required to cook the chicken quickly without drying it out).

Now spray some oil and arrange the chicken pieces. You can also arrange peeled and quartered potatoes with the chicken but that is optional.

Fold the Aluminum foil and cook chicken for 10-20 minutes.

The last 3 minutes I turned on the broiler and got the perfect color on my chicken and potatoes.

Enjoy !
