Lunch Box: Lazy Chicken Tikka

This is a really easy recipe to prep at the weekend and keep in your fridge for busy weekday lunches.

I often need a big healthy lunch to keep me going (especially on gym night), so I love this chicken recipe.

Rather than all that delicate garlic chopping and masala making (that I indulge in for a nice dinner), this is a bit of a wham bam thank you sam recipe (the best kind!) so even if you are feeling lazy on a Sunday, which I ALWAYS am, then you can just about handle making this one so you can kick off Monday the right way.

Then you can throw it into:

1. Salad - making a big filling chicken salad
2. Wraps - with avocado and a mustard dressing
3. Quinoa - with a vegetable medley which will definitely keep you going all day!

So here it is!

Lazy Chicken Tikka Recipe

🍴   Serves: 4
⏰ Prep Time: 10 minutes
🍳 Cook Time: 20 minutes
⏳  Total Time: 30 minutes
🎯 Calories:  272 per serving

🌱 Dietary Information: Gluten-free, low-sugar, dairy free, low-carb


3 chicken breasts thinly sliced
2 tbsp olive Oil
150g natural yogurt
2 tsp heaped, tikka curry spice mix
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp coriander powder
2 tbsp malt vinegar or juice of half a lemon


1. Slice each chicken breast, lengthwise, to create thin layers of chicken. I typically cut mine into 3-4 layers per chicken breast.

2. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan on high heat.

3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the yogurt, spices, and vinegar. Add the sliced chicken breasts and coat in the yogurt mixture.

4. Place your chicken pieced in a frying pan on high heat. Cook on each side until brown. Be careful not to layer the chicken pieces in the pan to ensure you get a grilled outer layer to your chicken.

Serve the chicken in any one of three ways listed above!
