Juicy zesty baked chicken, marinated in garlic, green chili, spices, garam masala, cornflour, yogurt, and cream! Baked and drizzled with cream for out-of-this-world chicken kababs!

Tender and juicy Afghani Chicken Tikka is super easy to make and is bursting with flavor. ‘Tikka’ means pieces of meat marinated in a spicy mix. Smothered in a homemade marinade, these tikkas are so good that they will simply melt-in-your-mouth.

A little different from regular baked chicken tikka, this is a kind of chicken kabobs which can be served many ways – as an appetizer, a snack, or the main course
