Chicken Tikka Masala (Maya's Makeover)
Very Good 4.5/5
(11 ratings)

DELICIOUS, easy, and now only 214 calories per serving!! This is my modification of a Chicken Tikka Masala recipe on this site. It sounded great, but I wanted to use less oil, didn't want to buy garam masala (when I had the ingredients for it on hand already), added a missing ingredient into the calorie count, and reduced the serving size. Still very yummy!

Very Good 4.3/5
(25 ratings)

This is an easy and delicious one pot meal. The number of servings seems rather weird, but that is how many 2 cup servings we got. I see that the sodium value is pretty high. There is no way to note it when entering nutrition information, but you rinse the chickpeas which lowers the sodium considerably. Of course you can also reduce the amount of salt you add to lower it even further! If you have left over butternut squash that is already cooked it cuts down the recipe time to less than 30 minutes, just skip the first step and proceed with recipe. Enjoy!
