Avoid Bones

Select Skinless, Boneless Chicken Breasts or Thighs. Due to their delicateness and quick cooking, these slices are perfect for picky eaters. Cut them into bite-sized pieces for easier fork scooping and twirling. Put the chicken in plain yogurt for a fantastic 30-minute marinate.

Yogurt Marinate

Tomato Delight

The sauce starts with canned chopped tomatoes. The spices complement their sweetness. Pour additional ketchup for kid-friendliness.

Rich and Creamy

For added richness, add heavy cream or coconut milk to the sauce. A smooth surface kids love is the consequence.

Nice and Recognizable Rice

Fluffy basmati rice is the standard chicken tikka masala side. It soaks up the rich sauce well due to its lightness. A bright and healthful veggie pleasure, this recipe pairs well with roasted broccoli or steamed peas.
