Generally, this recipe is full of calories loaded with butter and heavy cream! However, my version of the recipe is equally delicious and guilt-free. I made this chicken tikka masala recipe for a work event where it won an award among other dishes. Ever since the event, everyone has been asking for the recipe for this award-winning chicken tikka masala. You will have fun making this recipe and sure to get lots of praise for it. It is delicate, full of flavors, and most importantly without the added calories and artificial ingredients. I promise you will not miss going to the Indian restaurant for some good chicken tikka masala because you will master the art of making it yourself!
