Chicken tikka masala is a classic Indian dish that has become popular all over the world. It is a dish that is loved by many, and for good reason. The combination of tender chicken pieces in a creamy tomato-based sauce with a blend of aromatic spices makes for a truly delicious meal. In this blog post, we will show you how to make chicken tikka masala at home, step-by-step.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 can (14 oz) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish

Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, paprika, garam masala, turmeric, salt, and cayenne pepper. Add the chicken pieces and stir until they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400ยฐF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the marinated chicken pieces on it. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.

  3. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until it is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another 2 minutes.

  4. Add the coriander, cumin, paprika, garam masala, turmeric, and cayenne pepper to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.

  5. Add the tomato sauce to the pan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened.

  6. Add the heavy cream to the pan and stir until it is fully incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Add the cooked chicken pieces to the pan and stir until they are coated in the sauce. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, until the chicken is heated through.

  8. Serve the chicken tikka masala over rice, garnished with fresh cilantro.
