Healthy Chicken Tikka with Oats
Chicken Tikka masala is a spicy north Indian dish. It can be healthy or quite unhealthy depending on how the preparation is. We have made a healthy low fat version with a twist of oats in it.
Preparation time: 20 min
500g Boneless chicken cut into 2 inch square pieces
1 green chilli, seeded and finely chopped
1 onion,sliced and separated into squares
60g Pepper curry Masala oats
Spice blend for marinade
Wash the chicken pieces and keep aside.
Take a large bowl, mix all ingredients of marinade and make a thick paste.
Add all chicken pieces in the marinade and coat them nicely.
Cover with a cling film and keep it refrigerated for minimum one hour to soak in the flavours. After an hour bring out the chicken
Spread masala oats on a platter, coat the marinated chicken pieces with these oats and thread them on skewers alternating with onion slices.
Now preheat your oven to and switch the knob to grill setting and set the temperature at 210C.
Place these skewers on wire mesh placed in middle rack space , do not forget to place drip tray in bottom. It will not spoil the cavity of your oven and helps in easy maintenance.
Chicken pieces start to turn golden brown in 10 minutes and let them grill 3 more minutes before switching off oven.
