Chicken tikka masala is officially one of the nation’s favourites – and this dinner recipe means it’s pretty simple to make, too. It really is easy – just marinate succulent chicken breasts in lime, coriander, chilli, ginger and other spices, then cook them gently in Flora Cuisine or Flora Buttery. Finally smother the spicy chicken in a masala sauce with low-fat natural yogurt or Elmlea and serve with coriander leaves and rice.
