Chicken Tikka Masala with Rice

Maneet asks that you marinate your chicken for at least one hour prior to the start of the class if you’d like to cook along with her.  

Serve this dish with store-bought naan.


1 medium covered pot, 1 colander, 2 medium to large skillets, serving spoons

Tikka Masala

  • 15 oz. of tomato puree
  • 4 teaspoons tandoori masala, divided
  • 3 tablespoons fenugreek leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 can coconut milk (if needed, substitute cream)
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast (or your favorite protein/vegetable), cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons butter/olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

In a large container, make the marinade by combining yogurt, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper, 2 tsp tandoori masala. Add the chicken and coat thoroughly with marinade. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Roast the chicken in the oven at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Alternately, you can saute in a skillet on the stove until cooked through. Once cooked, set aside. In another skillet, heat butter or olive oil, add onions and saute until golden brown. Stir in the tomato puree, garam masala, fenugreek, remaining tandoori masala, turmeric and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in coconut milk until heated through then add cooked chicken and stir for a few minutes until well combined. Garnish with cilantro.
