A Delicious Chicken Tikka Masala Indian Easy Recipe

This is a tasty Chicken Tikka Masala Indian recipe that includes Chicken,Tikka. On this page you’ll find the ingredients for this Indian,Asian cusine recipe and cooking instructions. This recipe serves 4 persons (4 servings).

Let’s start cooking!


  • 2 lb. boneless chicken breasts, cut into large chunks (see pics)
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 3, 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 1 26 oz. can of tomato puree (diced works too)
  • 2 tablespoon of ground turmeric
  • 2 tablespoon of ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoon of garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon of cayenne
  • 1 cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon of olive or canola oil
  • 4 loaves ready-made naan
  • fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Cut chicken breasts into large chunks approx. 2-inches thick and combine with marinade/pre-rub of 1/2 teaspoon of coriander, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, and 1/2 salt. This is an optional step and does add to the total cooking time, but doing it will make the chicken itself taste better. Set aside for 20 minutes at room temperature or place in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 hours. (Spice measurements were not included above to avoid confusion.)
  2. In large, heavy pot or Dutch oven on medium heat saute the onions and minced garlic in oil until well browned. Add the remaining ingredients (minus the chicken) and stir continuously for about 5~10 minutes.
  3. Add chicken and cook over medium heat for 25~30 minutes stirring occasionally until chicken is cooked through. Near the last 5 minutes, add the yogurt and run to a boil while stirring. If the curry is too thick, some extra may be added according to personal preference. Remove from heat and set to cool a few minutes.
  4. Plate with warm, sticky rice (basmati and non-sticky rice work well too) and top with curry. Garnish with available cilantro leaves and enjoy.
