Notes about this recipe

  • Eat Your Books

    Can substitute ground cayenne pepper for chili powder, and chicken drumsticks or chicken breasts for chicken thighs.

    I loved this. I substituted boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it was ready in 35 minutes. The whole milk yogurt resulted in a lot of liquid on the sheet pan, and I pored some of that liquid off about half way through.

    Add me to the list of people who loved this. I didn't have time to make the pickled onions but I think they would have been welcome here, and won't skip them next time. The effort to flavor ratio on this dish was amazing.

    This smelled so good as I took the chicken out of the marinade that I had to slap my hand and remind myself it was raw chicken. I used a ‘tikka masala’ spice mix, appropriately neon. The fresh ginger imparted a bitter note and I would skip it in the future. The marinade made barely enough to coat 4 large bone-in thighs, would double next time so I can be assured of leftovers.

    This was really quick, easy and delicious - upped the chilli but still not enough and added sweet potato which I will repeat. Will make again but with extra spice.

    Very good! I used a whole serrano pepper and the full 1/2 tsp of cayenne and it was barely spicy (though I did use a few tablespoons of extra yogurt as I was trying to use up the container). The pickled onions are great on top.

    I like this concept, but I found the result very bland, maybe because I regularly cook from Indian cookbooks? It certainly has potential.

    Very easy to make and packed with flavour. This recipe is a winner.

    yummy, and pretty simple to prepare on a week night. I love all the tray bake, sheet pan, all in one recipes. They multiply the flavour so effortlessly.
