Chicken Tikka Masala

This was so flavorful! We had our neighbors over for dinner tonight, and I was a little worried b/c I hadn't made it before, but it was a big hit! Everyone loved it, even all the kids!
Another super and easy recipe!!!

I got it from My Kitchen Cafe

Ingredients for Marinade:
1 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (you can substitute paprika for the cayenne or cut down/omit amount of cayenne!)
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon salt
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Directions for Chicken:
1. Combine all ingredients except chicken. Pour sauce over chicken and
refrigerate for one hour. Grill or cook chicken in frying pan. Discard marinade.

Ingredients for Tikka Masala Sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper finely chopped
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
