Mild Chicken Tikki Marsala

Jo Zimny


Both hubby and I love East Indian food but neither of us can tolerate the heat of some of these dishes. So what I often do is add other ingredients to cut the heat. This recipe takes a while to prepare and the effort was worth it.

I served mine over Quinoa that I cooked in my rice maker. It turned out great.

How to Make Mild Chicken Tikki Marsala


  • 1I cooked mine in a large cast iron dutch oven, but any good sized pot will do.
  • 2Heat the duck fat and coconut oil on medium heat in the pot. If you don't have either of these use olive oil or other oil in its place.
  • 3Slice up the bacon, mushrooms, rosemary, onions and zucchini and saute them until just cooked.
  • 4Remove them from the pot with a slotted spoon and set aside in a dish. Leave as much of the oil behind as you can, if you need a bit more, add it.
  • 5Fry the chicken in the remaining oil. Make sure you brown both sides of the chicken legs. Then put them on paper towels to drain.
  • 6With the reserved oil in the pot saute the potatoes for a few minutes to soften them a little. Put the canned tomatoes into a dish and add the Tikki Marsala mix and give it a good stir. Add it to the pot. Add in the wine, chicken stock and coconut cream and mix again. Taste for seasonings.
  • 7Add the drained chicken legs back into the pot and push them down into the mixture.
  • 8Cook covered on medium heat for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and the chicken is no longer pink inside.
  • 9Enjoy over rice or your favourite grain.
