It's been a LONG time since I've posted a recipe recommendation, but this week I cooked something that totally deserves some hype,  Alton Brown's Turkey Tikka Masala

I'm a big fan of AB, and have been for a long time. I'm rarely disappointed with his recipes, but this one really blew us away. Both Super Spouse Karen and I said "oh my god this is good" multiple times. Seriously...multiple times.

I used chicken thighs rather than turkey in this, but I don't think that makes much difference. A couple of things that I think totally do make a difference are a) making your own garam masala from scratch as AB recommends, and b) the long, slow reduction of the tomatoes to intensify the flavors. #homechefskiss

I also whipped up some naan to go with this, which was appreciated by all. And look at that, you just got a free extra recipe! 

I'd post a picture of the dishes, but I'm generally too busy eating to remember to do that. But if you make it yourself, you can take your own picture! And send it to me!
