Chris's chicken tikka masala

Here's my version of this classic chicken curry. I usually make double or triple the quantity of the sauce at one time because it freezes very well. I also add much more than the 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper that I have listed here so please adapt if you prefer more heat.

Got to admit I hadnt planned on making a tikka husband loves a madras but thought got a load of chicken in lol...So I thought Id try this recipe. Well I said to my husband ok before you moan thought Id try something different lol... He loved it. I loved it I had 2 lots and the rest that was left over the next day for my dinner lol. Id say try this its simple enough to do and my god its lovely Going to make it again at weekend because my son said he loves chicken tikka. Only thing was at the end it said add curry powder but didnt have any in so think I sprinkled a bit of cummin in instead lol Sorry currymonster lol.

I used chilli powder and chilli flakes instead of cayenne as we love spice. Also used a tin of coconut milk in place of cream as that's what I had in the cupboard. Cooked it in slow cooker. Very tasty and easy to make. Will definitely be doing this again.

Great recipe... this is now known in my house as "Daddy's special curry". Have made it countless times. Change the cayenne pepper for cayenne chilli pepper if you prefer it hotter. Top draw recipe, highly recommend!

This is by far my favourite chicken tikka masala recipe! I did make some changes though. Only added half a teaspoon of salt, increased the curry powder to 1 teaspoon and used a can of coconut milk instead of cream. Once all the ingredients had come to a simmer on the hob I transferred to the slow cooker on low for 6 hrs. Delicious!

Oh. My. Goodness. 10 out of 5! My boyfriend said it's the best tikka he's had by miles, better than any restaurant, and I agree! Few little tweaks for personal taste; used half the salt to season the chicken, alongside curry powder and a teaspoon of garam masala. I fried the chicken first, put to one side & used the same skillet to make the sauce. I used double the spices but split in half, fried half as directed and added the rest to the sauce halfway through cooking. I added crushed up cashews and fresh chopped coriander (cilantro) at the end. Was truly wonderful, one of the best meals I've ever tasted, never mind made! My 2 year old loved it (I added yogurt to cool it down for her). Thank you so much for a beautiful recipe xx
