Chicken Tikka Masala

This is an easy recipe a la Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Cooking. I have modified it from the recipe on the back of the Patak's bottle.

You will need:

Patak's Chicken Tikka Masala paste
Plain yogurt
Chicken, diced
Cut onions or peppers (optional)
Package couscous (or 2 packages, depending how much you want to make)

1. Mix the tikka masala paste with the yogurt to create a marinade. I guesstimated how much of each I needed. You don't want too much of either ingredient.
2. Put the chicken into the marinade. You can either put it in a bag and let it sit in the refrigerator, or you can put it in right away. The chicken will have more flavor the longer you marinate it.
3. When ready to cook, add chicken and entire contents of marinade. Saute chicken, peppers, and onions until chicken is almost fully cooked. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 25 minutes. Sauce will thicken.
4. Prepare couscous according to directions on package.
5. Serve chicken and couscous together.
