4 Skinless/Boneless chicken breasts
Naan bread for grilling
Basmati Rice (cook according to package)

Chicken Marinade
2 cups plain yogurt
3 T garam masala
1 t garlic powder
1 t cumin
1 t coriander
2 T lemon juice
1 t kosher salt
1 t ground black pepper

Tikka Masala sauce
3 T olive oil
1 T salted butter
3 cloves garlic (chopped)
1 large yellow onion
3 T garam masala
1 T smoked paprika
1 T tumeric
1 T cumin
1 T ground black pepper
1 T crushed red pepper flakes
1 T kosher salt
2 T tomato paste
3 cups plain yogurt
1 small can whole tomatoes (San Marzano)
1 large can coconut milk (15oz) or 3 cups heavy cream
1 ream fresh cilantro

Yogurt Sauce
1 large cucumber (peeled and finely chopped)
2 cups plain yogurt (whole milk)
1 shallot finely chopped
⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ t cumin
½ t coriander
⅓ t ground black pepper
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cardamom
Juice from one lime

Cut up chicken breasts into medium sized chunks mix into a bowl with yogurt, lemon and spices from the marinade. Cover tightly and place in fridge for at least 2 hours before grilling (this will help keep it moist). Once marinated, skewer chicken and place on a medium hot grill (400 degrees) and cook until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees (using a digital thermometer). Rotate often for good grill marks!

Put all the Tikka Masala spice ingredients into a bowl and mix together. Use a pot to heat oil, butter and onions over medium heat – cook just until the onions turn translucent (about 5 minutes). Add garlic and stir into onions for a few minutes or until the garlic starts to soften. Add in spices and mix together well for a minute or two. Mix tomato paste and tomatoes (crush with your hands when pouring in) into the spices and onions – stir for another minute. Slowly add the coconut milk or heavy cream into the pot, whisking rapidly as you pour. Then add in the yogurt and mix everything together.

Once the chicken is done, place into the pot with the Tikka Masala sauce and let it simmer on low heat for 20 minutes. While the chicken is simmering in the pot – make the yogurt sauce by combining all ingredients into a bowl. Mix well. Slightly grill Naan over medium-high heat – set aside

Take the chicken skewers, drizzle with extra Tikka Masala sauce and place over rice. Garnish with fresh flat leaf parsley and serve with a side of grilled Naan and Yogurt sauce.
