Wanted to make this with some Naan bread.
I have seen a bunch of different recipes for this online.
Some use chopped tomatoes.. other tomato sauce from can with paste etc/
Was hoping i can pick the collective chowhound brain and get some feedback on recipes that worked for you.
Also why white meat over dark for this?
There have been a couple discussions on this topic with some good info as I recall -- definitely check those out.
I am a big fan of a creamy, smooth-textured restaurant-style CTK, and as such, I LOVE Cook's Illustrated's version. It uses tomato sauce and paste, and its chicken method is a winner (also fab on the grill rather than under the broiler!). I'm sure you could use dark meat if you prefer it; the boneless-skinless breasts are much improved by being in a flavorful sauce.
Here are some notes that I made a year ago (I emailed my sister) when I tried it. It came out great, but I had accidentally doubled the almonds, so it was rich, but is was SOOOOO good!
Here are my notes:
I tackled Chicken Tikka Masala - one of my favorite dishes. Yeah - I know it's a westernized dish and not authentic Indian, but I just love the marinated grilled chicken in creamy tomato sauce. I accidentally put twice the amount of ground almonds in the recipe. Actually, I think what I made was Chicken Tikka Korma Masala ! Whatever - it was absolutely delicious! I sort of combined these two recipes - the second one has way too much salt but the reviews warned me, also I used only 1/4 cup of heavy cream, that was plenty.
