CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA

Chicken Tikka Masala is an extremely popular Indian stew that’s made with chunks of tangy grilled chicken all wrapped up in a creamy, spicy tomato sauce.


I can’t believe that I had never shared a recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala with you guys before. I mean, if like me you’re a huge fan of Indian food, then Chicken Tikka Masala is undoubtedly the first recipe that you need to learn, and even perhaps know by heart.

In case you’re not familiar, Chicken Tikka Masala is an extremely popular Indian stew that’s made with big chunks of tangy grilled chicken all blanketed in a deliciously creamy, spicy tomato sauce.

Of course, there must exist about 2 million different recipes and methods for making Chicken Tikka Masala out there, and a lot of them are probably much closer to the authentic Indian dining experience than mine will ever be. Again — I’m not Indian, so I don’t claim to be a specialist at cooking Indian food…

Still, I think that this version is VERY tasty, super easy to make at home and is close enough to the real deal that it’ll have you want to stay in and make your own, from time to time.

Or perhaps all the time!



You will need to plan a little bit ahead of time, since the chicken needs to marinate in a mixture of yogurt, lime juice, garlic, fresh ginger root and a great big assortment of fragrant spices.

The first thing you’ll want to be doing is mix all those spices together in a bowl, and then prep the rest of your ingredients.


Then, in a large mixing bowl, you’ll want to combine your pieces of chicken, yogurt, lime juice, minced garlic and ginger, and about half the spice mix you just made.

Toss well, until all the pieces of chicken are completely coated in the yogurt mixture and send that to the refrigerator for at least an hour, or until the next day.



When you’re ready to eat, melt a few tablespoons of ghee in a sauté pan set over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook it, stirring occasionally, until it’s slightly softened and golden, about 3 minutes.



Reduce the heat to medium-low then stir in the remaining spice mix; add the crushed tomatoes and water and bring the sauce to a boil.



Reduce the heat, cover the pan partially by placing the lid slightly askew and maintain a slow simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 25 minutes.



While that’s happening, get busy cooking the chicken. Start by setting your oven to broil and then place a rack in the top position.

Thread the pieces of chicken onto metal skewers and place the kabobs across a dark roasting pan. Try to get the skewers to rest on the edges of the pan in such a way that the chicken doesn’t actually come in contact with the bottom of the pan.

If the kabobs were resting at the bottom of the pan, the chicken would end up sort of boiling and wouldn’t char quite as nicely — You’re wanting your pieces of chicken to become nicely charred, for maximum flavor!



Place the pan directly under the broiler — the closer the better — and cook the chicken until it’s nicely charred, which should take about 15 to 20 minutes total. You’ll want to flip the kabobs once about halfway through cooking.

Note that you could also grill the kabobs on an outdoor grill, if you had access to one!



Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the skewers and then add it to the tomato sauce, along with the cream.

If you’re not big on the idea of using heavy cream, you could very well use coconut milk instead. While not completely authentic, it would no doubt confer a nice, slightly sweet and somewhat exotic flavor to the dish!



Give the dish a good stir, place the lid back on and let it all simmer for an additional 5 minutes.



Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the chopped cilantro (or parsley, if you’re not a fan of cilantro) and serve with cooked basmati rice if desired.

Me? I like to top mine with a little dollop of plain yogurt and then hit it with a little squirt of lime juice…

Talk about yummy!

CHICKEN STUFFED WITH SPINACH AND RICOTTA CHEESE



Spread the ricotta cheese and spinach mixture on top of each chicken breast.  I always lay a piece of waxed paper down on my cutting boards when I’m working with any meat.  Makes cleanup so easy.


Spread a layer of ricotta cheese and spinach on top of each chicken breast and then gently roll up.
Lay each chicken breast seam side down in a baking dish that has a some tomato sauce on the bottom.  Don’t forget to spray the casserole dish with a non-stick spray first…again we love easy cleanups!

CHOCOLATE TURTLE POKE CAKE

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Eagle Brand. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All opinions are mine alone.


The kids are out of school all week for the Thanksgiving holiday, so we came to Alabama to visit family for a few days. I think it’s wonderful that the children get 9 whole days off! Not having to wake up at 6 am for a few days is just fine with me. Plus, I love visiting my relatives.

One of the nice things about having a blog as your full time job is that you can make your own schedule. I can also blog while I’m out of town and that’s what I’m doing today.

Since I’m always baking sweet treats, of course I wanted to bring something yummy to share with my family. I wanted something extra special that would also travel well.

Enter Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake. It’s so ooey, gooey good! If you’re a fan of chocolate turtles, then you will love this cake. Plus, it’s very simple to make using the Caramel Flavored Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk. (Note: If you can’t find the seasonal flavor of the Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk, you can substitute 1 cup of caramel flavored syrup, found in the ice cream section of your grocer.)

“Caramel Flavored and Chocolate Flavored Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk are limited-edition seasonal flavors which make great shortcuts while you’re baking delicious holiday favorites for your friends and family. Both the chocolate and caramel varieties of sweetened condensed milk bring the rich, creamy texture to holiday recipes that the entire family will love. Try them now, because just like the holidays, they’re here only for a short time.”



Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake starts with an easy chocolate cake mix prepared according to package instructions. Then you poke holes in the top with a wooden spoon handle. Pour caramel flavored sweetened condensed milk over the cake and spread all around. Refrigerate for an hour. Then frost with chocolate frosting and sprinkle with pecans and mini chocolate chips.

This is a great dessert to serve your guests at a holiday party. It’s sure to please all of those chocolate lovers in your life. It also looks impressive although you can whip it up in no time.



Caramel is something that’s usually a bit tricky to make from scratch, but don’t worry, you can use Eagle Brand Caramel Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk right out of the can. No stirring over a hot stove and messing with a candy thermometer.

But it’s a limited edition item, so make sure you try some during the holidays before it’s gone! It also comes in Chocolate for a limited time only.

“The two new flavors provide the same quality that Eagle Brand consumers have trusted for over 150 years.”



Making this cake couldn’t be easier. Start by mixing up your favorite chocolate cake mix (I used my Kitchenaid mixer) and bake as directed in a greased 13″ x 9″ baking pan.

Click below to order either the Kitchenaid Mixer or 13″ x 9″ Wilton Baking Pan on Amazon (affiliate):


I baked mine for about 35 minutes. Let it cool slightly, then use the handle of a wooden spoon to punch holes all over the cake. That’s the fun part! It brings out the kid in me and makes me feel like it’s something I’m not supposed to do. Didn’t your mom ever tell you you’re not supposed to punch holes in your cake with your spoon! Punch away!  (You could also use a straw to punch smaller holes.)

Click below to order the wooden spoon on Amazon (affiliate):


Next, pour a can of Eagle Brand Caramel Flavored Sweetened Condensed Milk over the cake (or caramel syrup if you can’t find the seasonal Eagle Brand). Spread evenly, so the caramel gets into all of the holes. Put it in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.



Frost with store bought chocolate frosting.



Add chopped pecans, mini chocolate chips and drizzle more caramel syrup on top.




It’s ready to serve!




Once you slice it and place on a plate, you can drizzle more caramel syrup down the sides for dramatic effect. Who can resist caramel dripping down the side of your chocolate cake!

With chocolate, caramel and pecans, you can’t go wrong! Try Chocolate Turtle Poke Cake at your next holiday party.
