Chicken Tikka Masala


Chicken Tikka Masala is a great week night dinner because it is good with tons of veggies and cooks up really quickly. To make it lower calorie, just switch the heavy cream for diet cream. To lower the cost of the ingredients, use chicken thighs instead of breasts, and use frozen veggies instead of fresh!
