This coconut chicken tikka masala recipe is kid-friendly, make-ahead easy, and ready to add some variety to your weeknight meal plan!
I did so much cooking during our self-quarantine this past spring, like a lot of people, I bet. I wasn’t making as much banana bread as some people, but I was in the kitchen…a lot!
One of the things I did was cook through some of my cookbooks – and I use the term “cook through” loosely, because I don’t want to imply I cooked every recipe in the cookbooks I focused on. I didn’t. In the Magnolia Table Volume 2 cookbook, I think I made like 17 recipes out of the book, or something close to that number.

One of them was this Coconut Chicken Tikka Masala, and it’s so good, I’ve made it 3-4 times since!
