The recipe I chose comes from one of my favorite cuisines, Indian. My favorite recipe by far is my Indian Butter Chicken (Chicken Makhani) but this recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala is just as fabulous and so much easier to prepare!

I grilled the marinated chicken on skewers which gave it such a wonderful flavor! When summer rolls around, I just want to grill everything! You could either grill on an outdoor or indoor grill.

Chicken Tikka Masala (Serves 4)
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • 1 tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt*
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional for garnish)
  1. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons cumin, 1 teaspoon garam masala, cayenne, black pepper, and ginger. Stir in chicken, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat a grill for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill until juices run clear, about 5 minutes on each side.

Transfer to a serving platter, and garnish with fresh cilantro if you’d like.

This recipe is pretty spicy (just the way I like it). If you don’t like things as spicy, use less or omit the cayenne pepper and/or ground black pepper.
