Chicken Tikka


This is a traditional Indian barbecue recipe.



  1. Wash the chicken and cut it up. Cut off and discard as much of the fat as possible from under the skin, because the fat catches fire while cooking and causes the chicken to burn. Dry the pieces.
  2. For the marinade, combine all the remaining ingredients.
  3. Mix the marinade and the chicken and leave it all day in the refrigerator, turning once or twice.
  4. To barbecue, either a wood or a charcoal fire will do. Turn the chicken often so that it doesn't burn, and when the fire does flare up, extinguish the blaze by spraying it with water from the spritzer. It takes about 30 minutes to cook.
