Recipe tip: Try cooking these chicken tikka skewers on a barbecue for extra flavour.


  • 3 large chicken breasts, cut into chunky pieces
  • 75g greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp ginger and garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp madras curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp mild chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • STEP 1

    Tip all of the ingredients into a large bowl with plenty of seasoning and mix really well. Cover and chill for at least a few hours but preferably overnight.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the grill to high. Thread the chicken pieces onto four metal skewers, leaving any excess marinade behind, packing in the pieces so they are all touching. Put onto a baking tray and cook under the grill for 4-5 minutes or until charred, then flip and repeat until cooked through and charred all over.

  • STEP 3

    Serve with flatbreads, raita, shredded lettuce and some pink pickled onions, if you like.
