Low Carb Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe

Share
Another recipe that I've been using on my Low Carb P90x Diet is Chicken Tikka Masala. I found this recipe on the back of spices at Walmart.

Ingredients
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper (optional)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1.5 lbs cubed 1" skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 med onion (chopped, about 1 cup)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced undrained unsalted tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Directions
  1. Melt butter in large non stick pan on medium heat
  2. Add chicken, onion, and lemon juice; cook and stir for 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  3. Add all of the spices except red pepper; cook and stir for 1 minute
  4. Stir in tomatoes until well mixed.
  5. Stir cream into cornstarch and salt until smooth. Gradually stir into skillet.
  6. Stir in red pepper to taste, if desired (yummy!)
  7. Bring to boil
  8. Reduce heat to low; stirring frequently, simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thickened (I find it takes longer than 5 minutes)
  9. Serve with cooked rice or naan bread, if desired. (I usually go with Low Carb Cauliflower Rice)
 Serves: 6 (more like 3)

Prep time 20 minutes, cook time 20 to 30 minutes.

Nutrition: This depends on what you use and buy for ingredients, but here is what I get per serving (when split into 3 servings).

Not bad for a 8 carb meal. Add in a cup of Low Carb Cauliflower Rice and you'll be looking at 10.5 carbs for your entire meal. It also does a good job of filling me up and not feeling hungry later.
