Obsessed with Chicken Tikka Masala

I have always had a soft spot for “desi” food.

Particularly the dishes that incorporate indulgent sauces that are so flavorful you want it to last, but at the same time you can’t keep from eating it all up!

For the last year or so, I have been stocking up on this frozen Chicken Tikka Masala from Trader Joe’s.

I know.. microwavable meals can generally be… kind of gross. But this is not the case!

You can put this in the oven or microwave. Either way it tastes delicious! I’m drooling just thinking about it now.

Chicken Tikka Masala from Trader Joe's

What I like is to take it to work for lunch so that I have something quick and easy and it’s not too badly priced.

I believe it’s about $3.50 and if I buy lunch at work I end up spending at least $7.00.

So, it’s a win win in my opinion.

I know you can also get a similar item from Whole Foods that is halal by Saffron Roads. Their Tikka is amazing too, and when I make it out to Whole Foods, I make sure to stock up on that one as well.

Maybe, though.. I should learn how to make this myself and then freeze up a few containers to take to work. I wonder how that would be.

Do any of you know how to make this? What is your quick meal on the go?

    If I have to have lunch outside, then I bring sliced apples and peanut butter. With milk in a bottle, if possible. I generally don’t eat stuff that’s microwaved, because it’s not good for health. http://www.naturalnews.com/022015_microwave_oven_power.html Hope that helps!

    This looks amazing! I don’t have a Whole Foods or Trader’s Joe in my area but I like the recipe from Pioneer Woman found here http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/06/chicken-tikka-masala-by-pastor-ryan/ She makes it really easy to see how the recipe forms and I like how Tumeric is added to the rice. Now I’m on the hunt to make this recipe myself! It sound so tasty and looks so good!
