Baked Tikka Yogurt Chicken

I admit this may not win any prizes for being the most beautiful dish when you pull this out of the oven. I promise it tastes good though.

This is a simple version of that Great British favourite, Chicken Tikka, based on a Slimming World recipe. If you prefer your tikka to be in a sauce, there shall be a sauce recipe at some point in the near distant. If I remember to.

When I cooked the one in the photo above, I served it with basmati rice, for my mother, a mix of wholegrain rice and quinoa for me, and a salad of rocket, cucumber and cherry tomatoes.

Baked Tikka Yogurt Chicken – based on a Slimming World recipe

Approx 1/2 large tub of fat-free natural yogurt
The juice of 1 lime
3tbsp tikka spice blend (I use Schwartz)
1 whole pack of mini chicken breast fillets

Quite simply combine the yogurt, lime juice and tikka spice blend in a large bowl. Add the chicken, mix to coat. Cover in cling film and marinate, in the fridge, for a few hours.

Preheat the oven to 200c/180c fan/gas 6. Remove the chicken from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature. Place the chicken in a suitable baking dish and spread over the marinade. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Serve with rice, and salad. Don’t forget a good film to watch while you eat, maybe something like ‘Kill Your Darlings’?

Notes:

This will work with any curry spice blend.

If you want, you can serve this in baby gem lettuce leaves, and call it Chicken Tikka Lettuce Wraps.
