delicious and easy to prepare. i recommend first browing the chicken in the oil and setting aside to re-add at the step the recipe describes.
Great flavor while keeping the fat low. I added some toasted slivered almonds for a nice crumch
Overall I really enjoyed the recipe and it turned out great! I am not a huge fan of Onion so i used about half instead of a full and it gave it a very nice flavor.

Would definitely make again. I added a bit more salt and chili powder to give a little more flavor.

Enhanced it further by marinating the chicken in the yogurt n spices as well.

Needed a bit more chili powder for my liking. Taste grew better with each bite.

A pleasant surprise!!! Accustomed to making Chicken Masala with the traditional heavy cream but wanting a healthier version for my family.....It was full of flavor and delicious!!

Very tasty! Added slightly more tomatoes than it calls for. My husband loved it and I thought it was just as some good as some tikka I've had in restaurants.

I guess I expected it to taste more like Tikka Masala. It was far too bland for my family. We ended up having to put a lot of hot sauce on it to increase the flavour.

Tasted delicious, but I had to blend the sauce before I added the chicken because the sauce broke. My family loved it. I put it over coconut rice. Next time I need to make or buy naan since there was extra sauce.

What isn't good that Gina makes? Gina from Skinnytaste has some of the best tasting food around. This tikka masala was no exception. I've never really tried much Indian food and when I did I wasn't a fancy of it. A friend gave me a bite of his homemade tikka masala and it was pretty good. I thought I'd give one of Gina's a shot. This was amazing. I ate it all up and almost finished the whole pot. It had an amazing flavor. I ate it with naan bread instead and fell in love. Thanks again Gina for another amazing meal!

Delicious! Will certainly make this again. Followed the recipe, no substitutes. Recipe was easy to follow and although was not a quick recipe it did not take a lot of prepreparation.

This is a an excellent recipe and was well received by the whole family. I was cooking for 6 so I doubled the ingredients which increased the calories per serving but all plates were cleaned. This is definitely one that will be revisited and often and I will probably tweak the spicing to my requirements but even straight from the page, this is definitely good
