This recipe comes from Bill Wight of the BBQFAQ:
 

[H]ere is the recipe for some of the best chicken I've ever had. This recipe is from my Pakistani friend's wife.... They live in Karachi.

 

Chicken Tikka

 

Amount    Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method

--------  ------------  --------------------------------

   2      pounds        chicken legs, thighs or breasts

   1      teaspoon      salt

   1      teaspoon      red chili powder

   1      teaspoon      coriander seeds, roasted, ground

   2      teaspoons     garlic, minced

   2      teaspoons     ginger, fresh, grated

   2      tablespoons   lemon juice or white wine vinegar

  1/2     teaspoon      black pepper, ground

                        vegetable oil

   1      dash          red food coloring for traditional color

 

Remove the skin and make 2-3 deep cuts in each chicken piece. Roast the coriander seeds in a hot cast iron skillet.  After cooling, grind to powder. Mix all dry ingredients with the lemon juice or vinegar and make a paste.  Put this paste onto chicken pieces and leave them for at least 4-5 hours to marinate.  Better if left in refrigerator over night. Rub each piece of chicken with a few drops of vegetable oil. Grill the chicken using indirect heat over hot coals.  Grilled over lemon wood coals with some green lemon wood chips thrown onto the coals makes this chicken even better.

here's what wikipedia ahs to say about chicken tikka:

Quote Chicken tikka (Panjabi ṭikka, Hindi: मुर्ग़ टिक्का, Urdu: مرغ تکا); /murɣ ʈikkɑː/) is a dish of South Asia.[1]

It is traditionally baked skewers with small pieces of chicken, usually boneless, in a clay based oven called tandoor, after marinating in spices and yogurt.

The literal meaning of tikka in the Persian, Urdu, and Punjabi languages is "bits, pieces". The Punjabi version of the dish, however, is barbecued on red-hot coal and does not always contain boneless pieces.

The pieces are brushed with ghee (clarified butter) at intervals, which gives its taste, while being continuously fanned. It is typically eaten with a green coriander & tamarind chutney, served with onion rings and lemons, or used in preparing a chicken tikka masala.

A chicken tikka sizzler is a dish where Chicken Tikka is served on a heated plate and is served with onions. The dish is also known and eaten in Afghanistan, though the Afghan version (generally like Persian and Arab dishes) is less spicy compared to the Indian version.
