Specially marinated high welfare chicken cooked in a classic creamy tikka masala sauce served with pilau rice
Chef Cooked. No Artificial Additives. High Welfare Meat.
A delectable culinary wonder, Chicken Tikka Masala is considered British-Indian cuisine’s most famous creation. There’s many myths associated with its origin, the most famous being that in 1970 a Glasgow-Pakistani chef named Ali Ahmed Aslam added a touch of tomato soup and a sprinkling of spices to some tandoori chicken skewers that a customer complained were too dry. Perhaps it’s only a story, and in any case Indian cooking’s focus on spontaneous improvisation means that there will never be a definitive, original recipe. With its roasted chunks of marinated chicken breast, doused in a creamy vibrant sauce, we’ve packed it full of aromatic, Indian spices, aiming for that layered masala flavour.
