Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Chicken Tikka One Tray

Zero effort, zero technique, just time in the oven and using just one tray. Arguably not authentic but undeniably quick and easy, throw everything together, cook some rice and you’re ready to go. Breasts, legs, thighs…. bones in, bones out, skin on, skin off….whatever you fancy. Just adapt the cooking time accordingly. See below. Personally I like bones in, skin on as it gives more flavour.⠀

Serves: 4-6

Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 45 minutes
Total: 50 minutes

Difficulty: easy



1.5kg chicken portions— I used boned, skin on breasts, thighs and drumsticks
For the tikka Paste:- 2 tbsp olive oil, coconut oil or sunflower oil
1 tsp each ground cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper and smoked paprika
2 tsp Garam Masala
2 tbsp tomato purée
30g fresh coriander
5cm ginger peeled and roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves peeled
1 fresh red chilli – deseeded
4 tbsp Greek Yogurt – Tims Dairy is the best
2 onions cut into rough chunks
2 limes halves
Fresh coriander to finish

Blitz the paste ingredients together in a blender or bullet. Tip into a bowl (or direct into the roasting tray) and combine with the yogurt. Add the chicken portions. Make sure they’re all coated.
Lay the onions in a roasting tray and top work the chicken portions.
Roast for 30 minutes at 200 degrees then add the lime halves and roast for a further 20 minutes.
Serve with rice. Spoon over the onions, juices and chicken portions, finish with fresh coriander and squeeze over the limes (my kids don’t like this addition but hubby and I do 😊)
