I have tried countless Chicken Tikka Masala recipes and they never tasted quite right - until now. This is suberb! I only put 1Tsp of cayenne in the marinade, and subbed red pepper for the jalepeno in the sauce but otherwise made as given.

I'm marinading the chicken to make it again right now, can't wait!

Absolutely amazing. I've made this recipe 4 times so far, and it is wonderful. I have tried to grill and broil the chicken and found that both taste about the same. I will stick with broiling because grilling is too hard to clean up for me and the outside blackens too quickly and the inside doesn't cook as thoroughly. I have tried various levels of heavy cream or half and half, and my favorite is only use half the cream and use half and half for the other half. The cream really helps balance out the spice, so I won't skimp on the cream because my husband doesn't like it too spicy. I always make 50% more sauce than chicken, because I like the sauce so much on my rice.
I eat this with basmati rice (I use the rice cooker and put the basmati rice in like any other rice, except I add a pinch of whole cumin seeds.
I recently made this for a potluck and my Indian coworker says it's better than hers.

I don't own a grill & the boyfriend & I really like having extra sauce so once I marinated the chicken I dumped it all into the pan to cook together & OMG it is AMAZING. Just as good as eating at the local Indian restaurant. Now I just have to perfect naan.

I am the only person in my family that likes Indian flavors so whenever I have a weekend by myself I make this just for myself! One year I made it for my birthday meal and forced others to eat it because i could - it was my birthday!

SPEECHLESS! Words cannot describe how authentically delicious this dish is. I doubled the recipe, used heavy whipping cream and half and half, and the sauce was still incredibly creamy. In addition, I substituted boneless chicken thighs, and marinated them overnight. If you're thinking about making this, STOP thinking and get to the store for ingredients!

A perfect recipe for homemade Chicken Tikka. I added 1 teaspoon of turmeric to the marinade so the chicken would turn a wonderful yellow color. I used the BBQ to cook the chicken skewers, then served them on a plate and just spooned the sauce all over. Awesome :o)

I really enjoyed making and eating this dish. I wanted to eat Indian but didn't feel like having a take away so I decided to try this. It turned out great!! I made the marinade as stated but didn't skewer the chicken. I broiled it in the oven but I think next time I'll grill it. That should give the flavour more depth. I substituted sriracha for the jalapenos, added a small onion and used more garlic than the recipe called for....we love garlic! This was a very tasty recipe and I will definitely be making it again.
