Cheats Chicken Tikka Masala. This is my healthy, 30 minute One Pot Chicken Tikka Masala. No marinading required and Tims Dairy Greek Style Yogurt is used in place of cream. Chicken breasts are cubed and cooked quickly for speed and the whole dish uses one pot (plus your blender) to ease the washing up load. Enjoy! ?⠀


For the paste:⠀

  • 1 onion⠀
  • 3 red chillis deseeded⠀
  • 10cm ginger peeled⠀
  • 3 garlic cloves⠀
  • Bunch coriander, stalks included⠀
  • 2 jarred red peppers⠀
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree⠀
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika⠀
  • 1 tbsp turmeric⠀
  • 2 tbsp ground cumin⠀
  • 2 tbsp ground coriander⠀
  • 1 tbsp Garam Masala⠀
  • 1 tbsp honey⠀
  • 1 tbsp ground nut oil⠀

For the curry:

Colour your onions and garlic for 5 minutes in a lug of oil. Blitz together all the paste ingredients, adding some water to loosen if necessary. Coat the chicken pieces in the paste and simply add to the pan with the onions. Add the chopped tomatoes and simmer for 25 minutes.⠀
