Meera Sodha's oven-roasted chicken tikka is a snap to make. She has it listed in the snack section but it makes a great dinner. You can thread the chicken on skewers if you'd like. Make sure to soak them first so they don't burn in the oven.
Cook Time 20minutes
1 1/4poundsboneless skinless chicken thighs, cut in 1" pieces
1 3/4inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
4clovesgarlic, peeled and chopped
1green chile, seeded and chopped
1/2cupplain whole yogurt
3/4tspcumin seeds, crushed
1tsp garam masala
Put the chopped ginger, garlic and chile in a mortar with a pinch of salt and pound it until it is a rough paste.
Put the cubed chicken in a bowl and add the paste plus all the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly and marinate at least 15 minutes and up to several hours.
When you're ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper. Spread a bit of oil on the parchment paper.
Shake excess marinade off the chicken so it will crisp up a bit in the oven. Place the chicken pieces around the baking sheet so they are not crowded together. You may need two sheets.
Bake 10 minutes, turn the chicken pieces over, then bake another 10 minutes.
