Chicken Tikka Masala

This is my daughter's favorite dish when we go to Indian resturants. I found this recipe on another site, so I made it for her and her husband while I was visiting.

It takes a little while to prepare but is soooo worth the wait. I hope you will try this recipe. It is mild even thought it has peppers in it, my 2 yr old granddaughter couldn't get enough of it.
