What do I need to cook these Chicken Tikka Kebabs?
There are a few things you need to make this Chicken Tikka Kebabs. Some are necessary and some are ideal – they’ll make your life easier for sure!
- Good quality chicken breasts
- A jar with a tight lid
- Bamboo skewers
- A cast iron griddle pan
As for the jar with the light lid – it’s needed to store the rest of the Tikka Seasoning Mix in. I use these Kilner herb jars from Amazon, they’re really good quality, and will keep your mix fresh and dry.
The bamboo skewers you can probably pick up from any supermarket, they’re on offer in a few supermarkets at the moment!
Lastly the cast iron griddle pan, this has to be the most used pan in our kitchen. It conducts heat so well, and is suitable for all stove surfaces. You also get those lovely griddle marks on your meat too.
You can get this Kitchen Craft 24 cm Cast Iron Round Ribbed Grill Pan super cheap over on Amazon. It’s the one we have, and use many times each week!

How do I make and cook these Chicken Tikka Kebabs?
This is one of our easier recipes! Literally all you do is cut the chicken up, marinade and cook. It doesn’t get much easier.
Make the Tikka Seasoning Mix by mixing together all of the ingredients in the recipe below. Store them in a jar with a tight lid as you won’t use all of it, so best to keep some for later.
Chop the chicken into chicken nugget sized pieces, and pop in a bowl along with the lemon juice. Add 2 tbsp of the Tikka Seasoning Mix (in the recipe below) and mix well, then add the yoghurt and repeat. You want to make sure all of the chicken pieces are coated.
Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave the chicken to marinade in the fridge for at least an hour, but no more than 6 hours.
Preheat your oven to 200°C, pop your pan on the stove to heat up and thread the chicken onto the skewers.
We want to give the Chicken Tikka Kebabs some colour first, so pop them in the griddle pan/frying pan to brown. Then place in the preheated oven for 5-10 minutes until cooked through.
That’s how you make our Chicken Tikka Kebabs! So simple, straight forward and delicious! You can enjoy them with any one of our Indian Fakeaway dishes.
