Chicken Tikka with Steamed Veggies


This was not my dinner choice for today, I  wanted to make a stir fry but I changed my mind after reading the stir fry  recipe. I  wasn’t happy with the ingredients combination so I did an old favourite recipe, Chicken Tikka and topped with green vegetables. Best decision for dinner.


For the Chicken Tikka

750g chicken thighs

¼ onion chopped

2 crushed cloves of garlic

1 tbsp. fresh grated ginger

2 tablespoon lemon juice

3 tsp. ground coriander

3 tsp ground cumin

3 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup plain yogurt


For the Steamed Vegetables

1 small broccoli cut in floreats

1 cup frozen peas

150g snap peas cut in half

150g green beans cut in half


For the chicken tikka

In a food processor add the onion, garlic, ginger, spices, lemon and salt,  yogurt.  Blend mixture until it’s combined.

Add the chicken in the mixture and coat. Let it marianate for an hour or longer.  (The longer the better).

Once ready for cooking. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a chargrill pan on medium heat. Add the chickens and cook chicken through.


For the Steamed Vegetables

Boil water in a kettle.  Once the water is boiled add it in a saucepan.

Place all the vegetables in the steamer and place the steamer on top of the saucepan to steam the vegetables.

Steam vegetable for 3-5 minutes or to your liking.
