Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe

Time was running late on me and I needed something quick and spotted the recipe card in the store that said “Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe”. I didn’t have a clue what Garam Masala was, which the recipe called for. (According to “Garam Masala is a blend of ground spices used extensively in Indian cuisine. The spices for garam masala are usually toasted to bring out more flavor and then ground. “) anyway this recipe came with a seasoning packet and I thought why not give it a try? I made a few small changes to the recipe; it was pretty good for something different.  It worked out well for something quick, and the family thought it was pretty good. If you’re in a hurry and want to try something a little different give this Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe a try. Enjoy

This is another very simple recipe with almost no prep time. If you don’t want to heat up the kitchen, or maybe you are short on time; this is another set it and forget it recipe. I had something to do in the afternoon so I used boil in bag rice to help cut down on the personal cooking time required.

The end result was a tender and great tasting pork ribs dinner the whole family enjoyed. If you like food with a hint of orange, give this Slow Cooker Chinese Pork Ribs Recipe a try. Enjoy
