For the Chicken Tikka:

2 lbs chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons turmeric powder
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

For the Masala Sauce:
2 tablespoons ghee or butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-inch piece ginger, minced
1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon paprika
1 cup heavy cream
Salt to taste
Fresh cilantro, for garnish

Marinate the Chicken:
In a bowl, mix yogurt, lemon juice, turmeric, garam masala, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken chunks, coat well, and marinate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.

Preheat the Arteflame Grill:
Fire up your Arteflame Grill.

Grill the Chicken:
Brush the chicken with vegetable oil and grill until charred and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.

Prepare the Masala Sauce:
In a skillet on the Arteflame, melt ghee. Add onions, garlic, and ginger, sautéing until onions are soft. Stir in crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, garam masala, and paprika. Simmer for 10 minutes.

Combine Chicken and Sauce:
Add the grilled chicken to the skillet with the sauce. Pour in the heavy cream, stir well, and simmer for another 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Garnish and Serve:
Garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve your Chicken Tikka Masala with naan or rice for a complete meal.
Grilling Tips:
Ensure your chicken is marinated well for the best flavor infusion.
Keep an eye on the chicken as it grills to avoid overcooking.
