Chicken Tikka

If you follow me on Instagram (@chefeitanbernath), then you know that I LOVE Indian food! Ever since I was little my mom brought me and my brother to Indian restaurants. I have been eating it ever since I can remember. I love it because it has so many amazing flavors and textures that our Jewish or American food doesn’t.

Chicken Tika is a traditional Punjabi street food. It is either cooked in a tandoori oven or over hot coals.  I reacareated the street food favorite in my kitchen!

I am super excited to announce that I will be taking over The Feed Feed’s snapchat this Wednesday! For those of you who don’t know, The Feed Feed is a crowdsourced recipe website that shares the Instagram community’s best food pictures and recipes. They have over 900,000 followers on Instagram! They also do an awesome thing on Snapchat. They have a different person “takeover” their account, everyday, and make a recipe. I am super excited for this. I will be making this Chicken Tikka recipe! So be sure to check it out on Wednesday on their story!
