Quick + Easy Chicken Tikka Masala

The last time I made chicken tikka masala, I remember getting the recipe from Food Network and spending an entire afternoon in the kitchen – blending the spices myself, marinating the chicken for several hours, standing over the hot skillet getting the right charr, etc. It was one of those …

Life has been crazy in the Suddeath house these last couple weeks – in the best possible way. But one thing that has been tossed out the window is our normal routine. Grocery shopping, meal planning, and food prepping have all been haphazard to say the least. So in a last minute attempt to …
