Chicken Tikka Masala (Throwback Thursdays)

I recently did a remake of my Chicken Tikka so I knew I had to redo the
2011 Photo
Chicken Tikka Masala curry as well.  This curry is made with roasted marinated chicken pieces (Chicken Tikka) in a flavorful sauce.  It's a pretty easy dish to make if you already have prepared Chicken Tikka leftovers. If not, you will need to take a few  additional steps before making the curry.  

Note:  Throwback Thursday is a new series where I take some of my original posts here on  Curry and Comfort and redo them so I can take better photos.
