Low Carb Chicken Tikka Recipe

  Posted on   by   No comments


Back from vacation and back in the kitchen. Was visiting London where the unofficial national dish is Chicken Tikka (Masala). Thought I would take a stab at it low carb style.


Low carb chicken tikka

2 chicken breasts, cubed
4-6 chicken thighs, cubed
Juice from half a lemon
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp garam masala
1 clove garlic, grated
1 inch ginger, grated
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Pour lemon juice over chicken and mix. In a bowl mix all spices into yogurt. Pour yogurt mixture into chicken and mix. Marinate for at least 1-2 hours, but overnight is ok.

Preheat the broiler to high. Distribute chicken (with marinade) on a tinfoil lined baking dish. Broil for 10-15/side until cooked through and slightly browned. Serve with a garlic yogurt sauce (grate a clove of garlic into a few tbs yogurt, squeeze a little lemon, mayo can be used instead of the yogurt).
