Actifry Chicken Tikka Masala Curry

by hintofhelen

Chicken tikka masala is one of the nations favourite take-away curries. 

It’s mild, sweet and rich – a dish the whole family can enjoy. Here is my recipe for the perfect Actifry curry – made with lean chicken breast, tinned tomato soup and sweetened with almonds and coconut. 

You can of course add as many veggies as you wish to this dish but i’ve stuck to the traditional take-away style of just meat chunks in a thick gravy sauce.
