It's hard to believe you can get such a full-flavored, deeply spiced chicken tikka masala in just 30 minutes, but we did it! And, like the title says, this classic chicken tikka masala recipe really is as easy as it gets.
Heat oil in a large, heavy pot over high. Add chicken; cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Add onion, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Add tomato paste, turmeric, garam masala and cayenne; cook, stirring constantly, until spices are toasted and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in tomato puree, stock, cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-high. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in cilantro; serve over rice.
This is such a good dish! Fulfilled the craving for it, and so much better than jar! Very easy to make, simple ingredients
