Prepare the chicken tikka
Preheat the oven to 350* F [180*C Fan Oven].
On a cutting board, cut the chicken into thin pieces and put them in a large mixing bowl.
In a small bowl, add all of the marinade ingredients and mix them well, until the color becomes uniform, then add the mix to the chicken.
Ensure each piece of chicken is thoroughly covered with the marinade, then cover the bowl and set aside to flavor and rest for at least half an hour.
Cook the marinated chicken breasts in the preheated oven; these will be cooked in about 20 minutes. Once thoroughly cooked, remove from the oven and set aside.
Prepare the green chutney
In an upside-down blender, blend the cilantro [fresh coriander], garlic, chaat masala, lemon juice, green chili, salt, and one teaspoon of the yogurt. Do not put all of the yogurt in the blender, as this will make the chutney very liquid.
Once this is blended and smooth, put in a small bowl and add the rest of the yogurt a bit at a time, mixing with a spoon. Once done, taste for salt and spiciness, adjust, and set asie.

How to store green chutney?
- In the fridge: The green chutney can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. Always use a clean spoon when removing the amount needed.
- In the freezer: I would not recommend freezing the green chutney, as it tastes best freshly made.
- Crunchy Salad: You can put any raw vegetables you like! Good additions are a banana shallot, some thinly sliced white cabbage, grated carrot, julienned red pepper, or a few spring onions or scallions.
- Frying Pan, Grill, or Bake: You can cook the chicken your preferred way. Should you have the oven on, then bake them, however, if you like your chicken grilled or lightly pan-fried, then add a little vegetable oil to your pan and ensure you get a nice char.
- Green Chutney: It needs only a little lemon [or lime] juice, however, this will help the chutney maintain its bright green color.
