Chicken Tikka With Mango Salad

Chicken Tikka with Mango Salad is a delicious lunch or light dinner and perfect for Spring. The spicy Chicken on a stick can be grilled on a health griller, in a griddle pan or on the barbecue.

Chicken Tikka with Mango Salad

The absolute most delicious light dinner or lunch !  Chicken Tikka comes in so many shapes and forms, but we adore this Chicken Tikka with Mango Salad.

Food on a stick is just so much fun, don’t you think ? It can easily be dipped in a sauce and is so easy to eat by hand. I have made Chicken Tikka in so many forms over the years, but this is definitely our favorite.

What does Tikka mean ?

It literally means bits or pieces. Usually Chicken or other types of meat, but it can also refer to vegetables.

Chicken Tikka with Mango Salad

We usually enjoy this Chicken Tikka as is, with the Yogurt Sauce and the Mango Salad (which is more a Salsa) without any rice.

Depending on the weather or how hungry your family is, serve the Chicken over Basmati rice together with the Sauce and the Salad.

The serving size is for adults, therefore you can easily stretch the recipe if you have more kids than adults for dinner. Simply make the kebabs a little smaller.

Chicken Tikka with Mango Salad

Something else to keep in mind is that the Mango Salad is extremely delicious and always a hit with the kids ! Consider making a double batch, I usually do and we do not even have little kids 😉 .

The cooking options are just about limitless and another bonus !

  • Use a griddle pan
  • Throw on the barbecue
  • Grill using a health griller
  • Use a Kebaba (Kebab maker)
