Chicken Tikka BBQ

I wanted my first blog to be one of Ayaans favorite dish. He loves chicken. but not as a curry..Fried or BBQed. On one of my visit to a friends house she made this Chicken BBQ. It was very simple and very delicious..Simple coz all u need is a packet of Tikka masala. I use Shaan's chicken Tikka masala..and Like Sandra Lee says its simple, its fresh and its Semi home made!!

All u need is...
  • Skinless Chicken 2kgs
  • Garlic paste 1 tbsp
  • ginger paste 1 tbsp
  • Lemon juice 8 tbsp
  • Shaan Tikka BBQ mix one packet
  • Clean the chicken and cut deep slits on each piece of chicken. Mix all ingredients together except the butter. If u dont like ur chicken very spice use like 3/4th of the packet of masala.Apply the mixture over the chicken and marinate for at least 2 hrs. The more the time the tastier it gets.
  • Apply butter over the chicken and grill the meat till it is tender. An another alternative is to use the oven. Pour the butter in a baking pan, place the chicken pieces in it and bake it in 350* for 40- 45 minutes.Turning and brushing it with little butter occassionaly. Adjust the oven heat and time according to your oven settings!!
I serve this with fresh veggie salad. Bon appetite!!!
