Chicken Tikka
« on: February 24, 2012, 03:27:39 PM »
Our son sent me this recipe. He was raving about it! I managed to buy a bunch of coriander the other day so made this. It was so tasty.

4 chicken breasts, cubed
1" grated ginger
2 garlic cloves
2 tablesps fresh coriander
Juice of 1 lime and 1/2 a lemon
1finely chopped red chilli
1 teasp hot chilli powder
Olive oil
---------------------------------
1 finely chopped onion
1 teasp turmeric
2 tablesps tomato puree
300 ml double cream

Blitz ginger, garlic, coriander, chilli powder, chilli, lime and lemon juice, a glug of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
Pour over the chicken. Put in a sealed polybag in the fridge overnight.

Cook chicken in a hot pan until browned. Remove.
Cook onion in same pan until browned.
Add turmeric and tomato puree. Cook for another minute.
Stir in cream and heat gently.
Add the chicken to the sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.
Check seasoning.

Sprinkle coriander over to serve.

Easy peasy!

Enjoy - it's delicious!

Tried the recipe last night and it was delicious I had to do it without the coriander though as I couldn't find any.

I keep trying to grow coriander but it goes to seed very quickly here.

I was pleased with how this turned out Denise. It will probably be one of those recipes that I make over and over again! I'm glad you liked it too!

We bought a biggish bunch of coriander in Diellas Fruit, Gouvia next to Diellas supermarket. (They have a facebook page so you can find out if they have what you want before you go!)

I grow coriander successfully in the warmer weather but only if I sow the seed in small pots every couple of weeks or so and keep the pots totally in the shade. I do freeze it but it doesn't look so good when cooked. At least though you still have the flavour.

I suppose you could prepare the marinade ingredients when the coriander is growing well and freeze it to use when you next want it. I think I may try that sometime.

Thanks for the tips Trisa, I used to grow coriander all year round in my greenhouse in UK but totally failed here. I am using English seeds so I think I will have to buy Greek ones and try again as per your instructions
