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.
I liked this recipe a lot. Went over very well for dinner, but we found the taste of cinnamon to be a bit overpowering compared to the other flavors. Will use a bit less next time. Very authentic tasting recipe!
LOVED it. Definitely a keeper!
This was very good. I love spicy foods but this was a little over the top for my taste. The red pepper pretty much overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. Will use only one tsp. next time. Also, I think scotch bonnet would be a better pepper instead of jalepeno. I substituted fat free yogurt and used FF half and half instead of whipping cream and it was plenty thick. Served with coconut jasmine rice.
I used this recipe for my first attempt at Indian food. Wow! It turned out great! I'd say it's about a 4 star spiciness level. It actually isn't hard to make either--the trick is to get the right spices. If you've never been to an Indian market, I def recommend it! I was blown away by all the cool products at mine.
I made a few changes to the recipe: used olive oil instead of butter, replaced the cream & full-fat yogurt w/ non-fat yogurt, and at the end it was missing "something" so I added about 1Tbsp of honey--perfect! My sauce was a bit too thick (from using yogurt instead of cream) so I added 1/4C water. And, instead of grilling, I just broiled the chicken for about 10min.
Also I didn't buy any naan which was a huge mistake! It was really spicy so I ended up using whole wheat toast to sop up my sauce & cool my mouth--not exactly as good as naan is!!
Anyway, I definitely recommend this recipe!!
