    veganhogg's Note:

    My all time favorite Indian dish - Chicken Tikka Masala. Since my vegan conversion, this is one meal I surely thought, I'd never have again. Thanks to the folks at Gardein, their 'chicken scallopini' makes this carnivorous dish, 100% vegan friendly!

      Fantastic sauce! I actually don't think you need to marinate the mock chicken (I used pre-diced seitan) at all, but grilling or broiling will help give it a firmer texture. Since it's thrown into the red sauce anyway I really didn't taste any of the yogurt marinade at all. All I changed was omitting the salt in the red sauce (since the marinade tasted quite salty to me) and then broiling the seitan on a baking sheet until it brown and more firm. Will definitely make again. So simple, took only about 45 minutes total after work (and I'm a slow cook!)

      This was AWESOME!!! I followed the recipe to the letter, except I did omit the cilantro. I used light coconut milk, to save on calories. I also used Wildwood brand unsweetened, plain, probiotic, Soyogurt. I did not cut the "chicken" into cubes. I just left them as "breasts" and marinated them. After about an hour, I wiped off the excess marinade and then threw them on the grill on low/med. They came out fantastic! After they were grilled, I cut them into bite sized pieces and added them to the Sauce. Oh, the beautiful sauce. I think I'm in love. It was so good. I could just eat the sauce by the gallon. Next time I make this, I will double the sauce so that I have plenty. I am not a vegetarian, but I have been vegetarian curious recently. My neighbor is a vegetarian and I made this and shared it with her. We both just fell in love with this dish. She has asked for the recipe. If being vegetarian can be this delicious, I think I just might become one full-time! I couldn't be happier with this recipe and this dish. The next time I make this, I will also add about 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper to give it a little heat. Thank you, Vegan hogg, for posting this recipe!
