    1. Hi Lorraine
      When adding yogurt to a hot pan you need to remove from the heat for a few minutes to prevent the yogurt from splitting. 🙂

  1. I did get lost at the beginning of this recipe a little bit 😂 I miss this bowl so much, gonna do it again soon~
    – Natalie Ellis

    1. Hi Natalie
      Have another go, it’s so worth it! You can follow the step-by-step photo guide or the written instructions under the recipe card. 🙂

  2. Just made this for our dinner. OMG, it’s delicious. No way would you think you were eating a Syn Free dinner.

  3. Can I make Tikka Masala in the slow cooker and freeze, just wondering with the yoghurt if it is not possible. Thanks for great website and super advice

  4. Bit worried about only cooking the remaining marinade through gently for five minutes considering the raw chicken was in it for 2-4 hours, will there be enough heat/time to cook that through and kill any germs?

    1. Hi Alison
      As long as the sauce is thoroughly heated through and has simmered for 5 mins it’ll be fine. Thanks for getting in touch.

    1. Hi Paula
      If you scroll down to the recipe card, you’ll find all the ingredients listed. The marinade uses the juice of half a lemon. Hope that helps! 🙂

  5. I made this this evening and , I have to say, it was truly delicious.!!!

    This is about the 100th time I have tried SlimmingWorld but, this time, I have you guys making delicious recipes for me to make. It’s the recipes I find on your site that keep me on planning and has re-invigorated my love for cooking.

    Thank you and keep up the good work. It really helps!

    1. Hi April
      You can use natural yogurt, we just prefer the taste and consistency of the Greek yogurt. Thanks for getting in touch. 🙂

  6. How are you supposed to remove the chicken from the marinade without taking the marinade with it? The yogurt always splits when I cook the chicken.

    1. Hi Michaela
      The easiest way is to lift the chicken out with a slotted spoon, or with a couple of forks. In step 4, we explain that you cook the marinated chicken in a separate pan, over a low heat. This should prevent the yogurt from splitting.
      Thanks for getting in touch!

  7. Hi there, will missing out the fresh coriander make much of a difference to the taste? Don’t have any in & would rather avoid going back to the shops. Thanks!

    1. Hi Carol-Ann
      The fresh coriander is added at the very end as a finishing touch. Whilst it enhances the final flavour of the dish, this will still taste amazing without it. Enjoy! 🙂

    1. Hi Nicola
      We recommend at least 2-4 hours, but you can marinate the chicken for longer, just make sure it’s sealed and kept in the fridge. 🙂
