Greatest Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe

Hello everyone. Chicken Tikka Masala is our recipe for this week. Its another addition to our curry themed recipe month.  It not only tastes great, but smells even better.  I believe you will enjoy it greatly.  It takes a total of 2 and half hours to prepare, but it is well worth the wait.  Apart from the time it takes to make, it is relatively easy to bring all the tasteful ingredients together, with a combination of different spices, lemon juice and yogurt in the mix this will be one awesome dish to make.  Feel free to pin this, share it and show us your take on the dish once you’ve given it a go.  Try one of our lamb and beef curry dishes as well for other options.
