Chicken Tikka Masala with Rice

14 Mar

My husband gave me a night off this week and made one of my favorite dishes.  His goal has been to learn how to make Chicken Tikka Masala using as  many canned goods as possible (so that he can make it on a whim when he feels like it).  Well, he did it and it is fabulous!

So, here’s his recipe:
