Chicken Tikka Masala is one of our favorite Indian dishes of all time. It is so easy to make at home and the flavor combinations are incredible! A must try!
Brady and Karen made this Chicken Tikka Masala for us years ago when we both lived in California and we fell in love. Recently we tried the same dish at an Indian restaurant called the Bombay House in Provo, UT and this recipe was spot on, it tastes exactly the same! So good and flavorful, you will love it.
- In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 tsp cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, pepper, ginger, and 1 tsp salt. Stir in chicken, cover, refrigerate 1 hour. Preheat a grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers and discard marinade. Grill 5 min. on each side.
- For the sauce: Melt butter in a large skillet. Saute garlic for 1 minute. Season with 2 tsp cumin, paprika and 1 tsp salt. Stir in tomato sauce and cream. Simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 20 minutes. Add grilled chicken, and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro. Serve over rice.
