Pretty surprised this recipe got such high marks across the board--it's REALLY spicy. Most of you must have palates with a higher threshold for heat. Having eating chicken tikka masala dozens of times from a wide variety of restaurants, in both location and quality, this was the spiciest I'd ever had, hands down. I nearly quadrupled the tomato sauce and doubled the cream and it's still got a kick. I used cayenne for the crushed red pepper. Could that be it? What other types of crushed red pepper are there? It's a good recipe, but it needs tweaking to me.
Very impressed! I used 3 boneless, skinless thighs with half the marinade. Sub'd milk for cream. Also used my toaster oven to broil - very easy!
Loved it! Made it exactly as described. Don't let the long list of ingredients deter you. It is easy list and you'll be thankful once you taste the wonderful way all the flavors meld together!
YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM! I am a chicken tikka masala SNOT and this was so delicious. I have been trying to recreate this dish at home for alot of years and this is the best yet! THANK YOU!
I'm going to add to the choir here. Yup, I love Chicken Tikka Masala and yup, this recipe was every bit as good as my favorite Indian restaurant's. And WOW - I never realized the amount of cream that goes into it, so no wonder I packed on 5 pounds when I used to eat it for lunch almost daily! Made the recipe with only two tiny changes, as recommended: sauteed the chicken in the jalapeno and garlic, and reduced the cayenne to 1/2 tsp. (still fairly hot!). It was delicious! Sadly, I gave most of the finished product to my son and boyfriend because it was too rich for me. That said, now I'm going to play around with this: my favorite restaurant makes a veggie masala that's more tomato-based and has less cream. Going to make this again tomorrow with a bit of half and half and more red sauce, plus cauliflower, peas, carrots and chickpeas. It's fun to have such a good base to play with!
This recipe is pretty amazing. I do tweak it to fit a lower calorie diet by omitting the heavy cream for light coconut milk instead. Trust me...you won't miss it. It's still super good, just less rich. You also don't need to jalapeno unless you're a glutton for spicy punishment. It is already plenty spicy. So much so that I even had to reduce the amount of red pepper.
My 16 yr old son is always wanting to try something new. We've only had authentic Indian food once and this is what we had. He wanted to give it a try at home. I found this recipe and he did the rest. It was delicious!!! Our 14 yr old can't wait for his brother to make this again!! Thank you!
I added more milk than needed and eye balled the measurements for spices (cus I only cooked one whole chicken thigh), but I feel like it's still a good representation of the original recipe. It was very good. Loved it.
Awesome!!! And sooo easy!!! I'm going to try this with lamb next!
This was delicious. Full of depth. Definitely follow recipe! Will make over and over again and pass on!
