Discirption: This is a very popular dish in many restaurants around the world but mainly in the United Kingdom. Chicken Tikka Masala is chicken marinated in a yogurt mixture, cooked and then served with a tomato cream sauce. For grilling make sure you soak the skewers in water overnight so they don’t catch fire on the grill. This recipe takes a little work but its well worth it. Serve with white rice. Enjoy.

  • 4 long wooden skewers (soaked overnight in water)
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro (chopped, for garnish)
  • 1 cup yogurt

How to make:

Step 1: In a large bowl mix yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, cinnamon, black pepper, cayenne pepper, ginger, and salt. Add chicken bits and mix well, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. After 1 hour thread chicken bits onto skewers. Discard the marinade.
Step 2: Lightly oil grill grates and pre-heat the grill to high heat. Put chicken onto the grill and cook until juices run clear (about 5 minutes on each side).
Step 3: In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapeño peppers and sauté for 1 minute. Add 2 teaspoons of cumin, paprika, and 2 teaspoons salt. Stir in tomato sauce and heavy cream. Bring to a boil while stirring reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
