Quick Chicken Tikka Masala

One of the most popular Indian dishes in the U.S. and the U.K., chicken tikka masala usually involves several steps including marinating and grilling the chicken before simmering in a curried tomato cream sauce. We’ve simplified it to a one-skillet dish and lightened it by increasing the vegetables, omitting the butter and using less cream. Serve with brown basmati rice and, for dessert, dates.



READER'S COMMENT:

I am so excited to eat this for dinner tonight! I made it while my kids are napping and will heat it up tonight. Took a taste and YUM! Cannot wait! I plan to serve it over Basmati rice. I couldn't find the Garam Masala seasoning either so I took my first trip to the Indian grocery store not too far from my house! I would recommend getting the ginger that you can squeeze from a tube. It's really just as good and so much easier. A real time saver.

OMG! I am recently trying Indian recipes and this turned out awesome and even better the next day. I definitely will make this again and again. I will need to swap out the flour for maybe rice flour for my celiac friends and family.
Give this a try for sure!

Really loved this recipe - made it twice in the last couple weeks, and the second time I used fire roasted diced tomatoes - even better. Made it with tofu the second time as well, and the tofu soaked up all the awesome flavors - really excellent!!!

My husband and I both love this recipe. It is very flavorful and pretty easy. We make it with the curried red lentil soup and they are a perfect combo. We make about 1.5 times the garam masala spice mixture and put about 1.5-2 tablespoons on the chicken as we found the chicken definitely needed more spice/flavor and sometimes add some early peas. Otherwise, we cook as directed and it is great!

I liked this dish, however, I think it could use some heat. Also, I had to add a few more pinches of salt. Overall a great dish that I will definitely cook again!
