Chicken Tikka Masala

This is a super simple one. I really thought it was going to be spicy and I thought I wasn’t going to like it because I’m not huge on coconut. But luckily, it was AMAZING!!


  • 2 Tbs. coconut oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced

  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 2 Tbs. tomato sauce

  • 1 1/2 Tbs. tikka masala curry

  • 2 tsp. paprika

  • 2 tsp. fine sea salt

  • 2 (14-oz.) cans diced tomatoes

  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (from the can)

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice for serving


  1. Cooke rice according to package.
  2. In a medium-size deep skillet (I used my dutch oven), heat coconut oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until the it is tender and fragrant.
  4. Stir in the garlic.
  5. Add the chicken and cook until the it begins to brown on all sides.
  6.  Stir in the tomato sauce, masala, paprika, salt, tomatoes, and coconut milk.
  7. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook, checking often to make sure the curry doesn’t dry out (add water if necessary). Cook until chicken is cooked through and tender, about 25 minutes.
  8.  Serve with cooked brown rice.
