Easy Chicken Tikka Masala

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Carianne

This was found on allrecipes.com. The original recipe called for a whopping 7 teaspoons of salt! We cut that considerably when we made it, and it was delicious, but still very salty. This version is salted to taste. We served this with basmati rice and it was yummy!

Delicious...I cooked the chicken in a pan bc i do not have skewers and I added a teaspoon of curry powder to the sauce.
