Preparation / Directions:
Clean, remove skin and debone chicken. Cut each leg and thigh into 4 pieces tikka in all.
Whisk yogurt in a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Rub the chicken pieces with this mixture. Keep aside for 3 1/2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Skewer the marinated tikka at least an inch apart. Keep a tray underneath to collect the drippings.
Roast in a moderately hot tandoor oven for 6-7 minutes, basting at least once. In a charcoal grill, for about the same time, basting once. In a pre-heated oven, roast the tikka for 8-10 minutes, basting at least twice. Make sure that the chicken does not touch the sides or the bottom of the oven.
