This was easy enough to make and very filling but I personally did not think this was anything special.
As others have noted, this actually takes a good deal more time than it looks like, and that is in part from taking into account the amount of clean-up, since it does use a surprising number of things, furthermore, even with a simple side you need to add time into the equation. That said, it's very tasty. I'd suggest maybe broiling the pitas only about thirty seconds per side, and I also question how much flavor the brief yogurt and spice covering adds to the chicken. But, minor quibbles aside, this is a fun and tasty riff on Indian flavors and flatbread pizza.
I used Afgan House bread instead pita. It added a few calories, but it was totally worth it! My wife and I loved this recipe.
This is one of my husbands favorite recipes. It definitely takes me more time than the suggested 23 minutes and it dirties more equipment than I would like but bottom line it is very good and I highly recommend.
Fantastic, low calorie pizza. Definitely on the spicy side.
This is one of my new favorite CL recipes! What a fun take on pizza and Indian food. I made these exactly as written. They were just the right amount of spice for me, but only one of my three kids could handle it so next time I may cut back or separate out some of the sauce.
Quick and flavorful. Great recipe. I am not sure if it was the masala I used or what, but this was spicy! Hubby and I loved it, but it was too much for the 6 year old. Easily adjustable--next time I will put a bit of the chicken aside before tossing it with the tomatoes to make her pizza.
Delicious! I've never broiled chicken before and turns out it's really simply and foolproof. I didn't have heavy cream but we subbed 2% without any problems. I will definitely make these again.
Phenomenal! We made these on naan instead of pita, and I subbed scallions for the red onion. I also skipped food processing the diced tomatoes to save time (and dishes), and I think next time I won't even drain them but just pour the whole can in the skillet and let it simmer longer while I'm cooking the chicken etc. My boyfriend gives this "6 stars out of 5" - the first time he's said that in 7 years of making CL recipes! It really is that good.
Absolutely delicious. While not really a kid-friendly pizza, it's definitely something adults will love. The flavors in the sauce are amazing and broiling the chicken with the garam masala-laced yogurt sauce is genius. The dish did take me close to 45 minutes to make, not 30, but it was definitely worth it. If making this for the family and there are little ones in the house, I suggest leaving out the red pepper and cutting back on the garam masala a bit. Otherwise, it's perfect. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: Tikka masala is one of our favorite chicken dishes. I was overjoyed when Cooking Light magazine put it on a pizza. http://bit.ly/YZaoFr
Very filling and the recipe is a beauty on the plate - plus it tastes great! I did do a substitution for the heavy cream - had low-fat buttermilk in the fridge instead, so I used that and had no issues. I also purchased chicken tenders at the store and put them whole on the pitas (saved on some prep time). I loved the pita base for these and all the flavors are delightful together. My only negative (which wouldn't preclude me from making again) is the advertised time to make these from start to finish - the magazine said 29 minutes; it took me 40-45 to ensure proper cook on the chicken and the broil stages. Plus, (though I wish I did!) I don't have a sous chef chopping for me / preping my ingredients so that added time. Just be aware that it will likely take you more than 30 minutes, but we thought it was well worth it! Make with simple green salads and you have a great meal; enjoy!
I made this last night for my husband and kids and we all ate every bite! (Unheard of with my 4yo!) I left out the cayenne, onion and cilantro to help encourage the kids to try it and it was still delicious and very flavorful.
So good! I didn't have heavy cream so I just used whole milk, and it turned out great. The flavor of the chicken and sauce is excellent. I will definitely be making this again. The chicken and sauce would also be great over rice, in a tortilla, etc. I only used about 1/16th tsp of cayenne pepper, and even that was a tad spicy for our 3 year old. I suspect the level of spiciness would also depend on the garam masala that you use. Next time I will probably omit the cayenne pepper and just sprinkle some on at the end for the adults. :)
Wow Good! Only thing I did different was omit the cilantro (only because I didn't have any). Will make again very soon - husband and I both loved it! Even with only 1/4 tsp. Cayenne, this is significantly spicy, so adjust accordingly if kiddos will be partaking.
So delicious! Made two pizzas with a salad. Have enough chicken leftover to throw over some rice for another meal. Will make again. (Makes dinner for two with leftovers or pizzas for four).
Delicious! Spicy and satisfying, just like chicken tikka! I cut down on the amount of chicken and the amount of cheese and oil and used 60-calorie flax and oat pitas...hubby loved it! And since it serves four, he can take the leftovers for lunch the next day!
These are really good! I did everything but the onion and cilantro, but I'm sure those'll work great if you like those ingredients. This is a nice recipe!
