Chicken Tikka by Suzie

This recipe uses a spice packet called Chicken Tikka Barbeque by Shan. It comes in a little box and can be purchased at Indian stores or ordered online at for just $.99. I usually buy about 10 packs at a time as my teenage grandson says this is his favorite meal in the world. It is very spicy and is perfect served over a bed of basmati rice.

  • 1 packet Shan Chicken Tikka Barbeque seasoning
  • 10 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 T. minced garlic
  • 1 T. minced ginger
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 4 T. butter
  • 4 T. olive oil

  1. Combine the Shan seasoning, garlic, ginger and lemon juice. Mix well and add the chicken. Pierce the chicken with a knife. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours stirring occasionally.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet and add the olive oil.
  3. Add the chicken and all the spice mixture to the skillet and cook until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve over rice.
