  • 2 Boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup Plain yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Tikka masala paste or spice blend
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 medium Onion finely chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro chopped (for garnish)
  • Cooked fettuccine or pasta of your choice


  • In a bowl, combine yogurt and tikka masala paste. Add chicken pieces, ensuring each piece is coated. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or overnight in the refrigerator for best results.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add marinated chicken pieces and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.

Prepare the Sauce:

  • In the same skillet, add chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until onions are translucent and garlic is fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and pour in heavy cream. Stir well to combine with onion and garlic mixture. Let cream simmer for a few minutes to thicken slightly.
  • Gradually add grated Parmesan cheese to the cream sauce, stirring continuously until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Combine and Serve:

  • Add cooked chicken back to skillet and stir to coat evenly with Alfredo sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until chicken is heated through.
  • Serve Chicken Tikka Alfredo over cooked fettuccine or pasta of your choice. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro.


  • Leftovers: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently in a skillet over medium-low heat, adding a splash of milk or chicken broth to maintain creaminess.
  • Avoid Microwave: Microwaving can separate sauce and overcook chicken. Always reheat gently on stovetop.
  • Sauce Consistency: Alfredo sauce thickens upon cooling. Adjust consistency with milk or chicken broth when reheating.

Can I Use Greek Yogurt Instead of Plain Yogurt?

Can I Use Greek Yogurt Instead of Plain Yogurt?

Yes, you can substitute Greek yogurt for plain yogurt in the marinade. Greek yogurt tends to be thicker and tangier, which can add a slightly different flavor and texture to the dish. Just keep in mind that Greek yogurt may not marinate the chicken as tenderly as plain yogurt does, so you might want to marinate it for a bit longer or add a splash of milk to thin it out slightly.

What Can I Serve with Chicken Tikka Alfredo?

Chicken Tikka Alfredo is delicious served over cooked fettuccine or your favorite pasta. It pairs well with a side salad dressed with a light vinaigrette or some steamed vegetables like broccoli or green beans. For a complete meal, you can also serve it with garlic bread or naan to soak up the flavorful sauce.
