Chicken tikka masala : Submitted by: Pete | Date Added: 18 Jan 2011
Listed in: Main Courses
Ingredients

4 skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 3-4cm pieces.
2 tbsp tikka masala paste (see mix below)
2 tbsp live yoghurt
Sauce
1 tbsp tikka masala paste (either make your own, see below, or use shop bought)
2 cardamom pods
1 tsp fresh ginger
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion, finely sliced
200ml stock
200ml tomato passata
3 tbsp of 2% fat Greek yoghurt
Fresh chopped coriander
Tikka masala spice mix
2 tsp g. cumin
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp g. cinnamon
1-2 tsp chilli powder (depending on how spicy you like it)
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp g coriander
1 tbsp water

Cooking Instructions

Firstly mix all the chicken pieces, yogurt and spices together and marinate for 1 hour.

Peel and cut the onion in half, slice and add to the ActiFry. Finely chop the garlic and ginger and also add to the ActiFry along with the spice mix, cardomom pods and oil. Set the timer for 30 minutes.

Cook for 5 minutes, stir well with a spatula and then add the chicken pieces, stock, passata and seasoning. Stir again to evenly distribute and continue cooking.

When the time is up, add the chopped coriander and the Greek yoghurt, stir well, check seasoning and serve. You canít add the Greek yoghurt earlier, as it is low fat and will split if left on the heat too long. Serve with pilau rice and chutney.

*A quick tip for the rice is to cook it with a cinnamon stick and bay leaf, then add a pinch of Saffron towards the end, then stir well.

So easy to make and very tasty. Was a little on the mild side for us but will add a little extra spice next time. Plenty of sauce as only used two chicken breasts for two of us. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe. Left by: Judy Davis (10 Sep 2014)

This was lovely and even eaten by our two year old who is picky. We use two breasts for the same amount of sauce. I accidentally marinated in Greek yoghurt and it turned out fine. Left by: Vicky (9 Jun 2013)

Have made this several times tastes just as good now as the first time I made it. Left by: Trevor haslam (7 Jun 2012)

I've just made this for tea tonight n it was blooming lovely, went down a storm with the whole family, only thing I will say is that I wish I'd put more liquid in it as it ended up a little dry Left by: jeni (23 Jan 2012)

Like racheal we had this with just two chicken breasts but everything else the same ... thought it was a bit on the dry side so would add even more liquid next time ... absolutely scrummy though :-) Left by: Eve Thirkle (21 Jan 2012)

I used frylite instead of oil & came out perfect, I only used 2 chicken breasts because it was to only serve 2 but kept the remaining ingredients the same as we like a lot of sauce, lovely recipe, will be doing it again & again! Left by: rachael (6 Nov 2011)
