Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe

Posted by Picasa

My favorite recipe right now is Tikka Masala. As many of our friends and family know we are a bit crazy about this dish. We can finally make it at home and be nearly as satisfied (we still have to clean up the mess).

Tikka Masala
**This is NOT a hot spicy dish

1 1/2 Tbls. vegetable oil
1 medium onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbls. (heaping) curry powder
1 can (12 to 14) ounces unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup fresh diced OR canned diced tomatoes
2 Tbls. tomato paste
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1/2 cup packed fresh baby spinach

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and salt. Cook until soft (6-7 min). Add curry and stir constantly for 1 minute. Stir in Coconut milk, tomatoes, and paste. Cook until thickened (5-6 min). Stir in chicken and cook about 6 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked. Stir spinach in and cook for a couple of minutes. Season to taste with salt. Serve over Jasmine rice.

This serves 4-6 people.

One last plug...all three of our boys love this dish. Yep, that's right even 9 month old Charlie boy!
