Chicken Tikka | Stove Top Chicken Tikka | Chicken Recipe

It had been a long time since I made tikka at home.The last one I made was this paneer tikka  which was more than a year ago.Last month end was my daughter's birthday and I made it again this tikka but this time I made it on stove top.My son enjoyed it  a lot and asked me to make it frequent.Last Sunday I planned to make it to fulfill their wish with chicken.It very easy to make these tikka at home with very few ingredients.

Preparation time: 10 mins
resting time: min  1 hr to maximum overnight.
cooking time: under 30 min
serves: 2-3


  • Chicken breast-1\4 kg
  • Bell pepper/capsicum-1
  • Onion-2,medium sized
  • hung curd-1\4 cup
  • Tandoori masala/tikka masala-1 tsp
  • ginger garlic paste-1\2 tsp
  • turmeric powder-1\2 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • oil-as needed.


1.Clean the chicken well.cut in to small square shaped pieces of about 2 cm each.(approx.)Remove the inner portion of bell pepper. Cut it and  onion  in a shape of cubes.

2.To it add all ingredients except oil and mix well.Let is soak in masala for about an hour.

3.To a bamboo skewer arrange the marinated pieces in the order onion,capsicum,chicken and follow it.Repeat the process till all marinated pieces are arranged in skewers.

4.Heat oil in a flat tawa.Place the arranged skewers in it and roast it till it browns.Flip and roast on all sides.

Serve hot as such or with some sauces/ketchup.


1.Instead on grilling in stove you can also grill it in oven.In that case grill for 15-20 mins at 180 deg C till it browns on all sides.

2.For veggie version use paneer instead of chicken.

3.Here I have used only green coloured capsicum but you can use all colours

4.If you don't have tikka/tandoori masala then use garam masala but I cannot as sure about .the taste.
