How To Make Chicken Tikka Kabobs Fiesta Style

                              Chicken Tikka Kabobs
These yummy sizzling treats are so easy to make. Great for barbecuing, get together's or your next football games..
My 8 year old saw a 7up commercial with the tikka kabobs on TV and asked me to make my kabobs for dinner tonight, so I did, and they were mouthwatering, and so Festive!

The Tikka Kabobs are so Chili, moist, and Exotic in taste, because their marinated in a thick yummy paste for hours leaving them so juicy and moist from the insides.

And if  you feel lazy dragging your self in the kitchen today don't worry all you have to do is whip up the ingredients to make a paste in a blender so there's no fussing with the marinate!!

You can serve these baby's with Steaming white rice or your favorite Naan.. If you would like the recipe for my homemade Naan click Here.

prep time 15 min
cook time 30-35 min
oven 350

2 pounds chicken breast washed, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons ginger garlic paste/ or fresh ginger and garlic
2 green chili's

2 lemons
1/2 cup yogurt or cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon red chili pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon Chinese salt
2 drops of food coloring(red or orange)
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon honey

For the Vegetables: you can use any vegetables you prefer I used
1 large red onion
2 medium sized tomatoes
1/2 of a green cabbage
2 capsicum green (bell peppers)

Method for veggies:
cut your vegetables into large pieces about 1 inch wide
add black pepper and salt mix well.

Method for kabobs:
Soak 15 wooden bamboo sticks in water 1/2 hour prior to cooking
Grease a large non sticking baking pan or a broiler pan
Cut and wash chicken breast into cubes, and strain leaving no trace of water.
Put all of the above ingredients together in a blender.
Blend on high speed for 2 min until you get a nice thick paste
apply the paste to the chicken pieces, and mix.( leave 1/4 of the paste mixture on the side for later)
After Mixing well so you get all the Tikka pieces covered with the paste, Put the tikka mixture in your refrigerator and let
it marinate for about 2-4 hours before baking, or barbecuing. ( this can also be done the night before for better marination)
Start assembling your bamboo sticks
Put one piece of a Chicken Tikka, then a bell pepper, onion, and then tomato
Place on the middle rack of your oven and bake for 15 min, turning once ever 5-6 min
Using a pastry brush, brush the remaining 1/4 tikka paste on the tikka pieces and
Now place under your broiler for 15 min until tikka pieces are fully cooked checking every 5 min so they wont burn.

Serve with warm white Rice, Chutneys, and Naan.

  3. "Place under broiler for 15 mins"...I did not really understand that line....could you please explain that to me.

    1. HI, usually in most ovens, at the top or the bottom there is a broiler, like a grill that gives extra fast heat... I usually place them under the grill/ broiler of my oven to make them perfectly cooked ... Hope this helps..
