Blue Ribbon Recipe

We were pleasantly surprised by this flavorful chicken tikka masala. It's not traditional, but quite tasty. The seasonings on the chicken breasts are not overly spicy. The sauce is savory and creamy thanks to the coconut cream. Serve over steamed rice and with Naan bread for a quick weeknight meal.
