Fantastic. But a blender is needed to make the sauce super creamy. We just fried the chicken.

I have been purchasing tikka masala sauce at my grocery store in a little packet, but decided to find a recipe and make it myself. I did not use the marinade, I just sauteed the chicken with a little salt and pepper. The sauce is delicious! Absolutely perfect.

Delicious! We really enjoyed this recipe! I more than halved the cayenne because of young children, they still found it spicy (but also still ate and enjoyed it!). I would like to up the cayenne to 1.25 tsp, and add some onions and maybe potatoes. Also, I might add a bit of sugar to make it more like the CTM I love at our favorite indian restaurant. Thanks for the great recipe!

Absolutely wonderful! The flavors are so perfect yet simple as well. It was not complicated to make either. I doubled up the recipe to make enough for my sauce loving family. I also made both chicken and also tofu. Divine! The only thing I changed was that I added a couple teaspoons of tomato paste as well as the tomato sauce. It added a bit more depth and richness to the sauce and tasted amazing! Although it was perfectly fine without it as well. Thank you for putting up this recipe!

Really good. I'm insane about spice so I added a little extra tikka masala and some serrano (the jalapenos at the grocery store were a bit weak). I might try to cook it with a habanero next time. Anyway... Recipe is great. Cooked naan and chicken on the grill and served with rice. Delicious. I would like to know how to make the sauce more saucy. Maybe add more cream or perhaps some half and half next time?

This is my "go to" recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala as it tastes most authentic to what I've enjoyed in NYC restaurants. My suggestion is to follow the recipe given (the broiling/grilling of the meat is necessary). Note: Parchment paper helps to retain juices when broiling...just watch it carefully.

Followed the recipe exactly, however added a bit of sugar to the marinade as it seemed to salty and used a coconut milk/ half and half combo for the cream. The best part was that I skewered zucchini and squash in between my chicken bits and then grilled sweet potatoes with it. Absolutely delicious without the sauce and then the sauce summed the whole thing up.

Fantastic recipe!!! It is restaurant level! Sauteed the chicken instead of grilling. Also halfed the cayenne pepper. Love spicy and it was still very spicy. Some people might want to consider lowering the amount of black pepper too. Didn't have coriander, but had some fresh cilantro. (If I am not mistaken it's the same anyway). Used sour cream instead of sweet cream. Thank you so much for sharing this.

Not like this recipe needs another rave review, but I want to be able to find it to make it again! This turned out really well for us. I used half and half instead of the cream. I also reduced the ground red pepper to just a sprinkle so that everyone could enjoy it.
