Drawing inspiration from South Asian cuisine, this chicken tikka masala is just the right amount of spicy and savory. Fresh ginger, red chili peppers, fresh coriander, and masala paste flavor this traditional Indian dish. Coconut milk adds a creamy twist to the tomato based sauce. Serve with fluffy basmati rice and naan for an Indian inspired dinner full of flavor. Allow 30 minutes for the tikka masala to cook once all the ingredients have been added so the sauce can thicken and all the flavors of the spices can be released.
