Cooking Chicken Tikka Masala with Leftover Grilled Chicken

🍴 Cooking Chicken Tikka 🐔

Chicken tikka masala is the first recipe I think of when my fridge is full of leftover grilled chicken, which is a common thing after spring begins. This recipe with Indian flavors is actually a version of chicken curry or chicken stew, no matter what you want to call it.

An interesting fact about chicken tikka is that it does not come from India, but was created by Indian chefs in the UK to use leftover chicken and cook food to the liking of the British. This is how the delicious tikka masala appeared, which is now prepared with other types of meat, not only chicken.

As I said, I often cook chicken tikka with my own recipe (see below). By the way, there is no fixed recipe for tikka masala, but a few dozen versions, so you can customize the recipe according to your taste and the ingredients you have at hand. The only exact element is the leftover fried, baked, roasted, or grilled chicken, otherwise, your imagination is free to create a culinary masterpiece!
