Crockpot Chicken Tikka Masala

Hagin and I first had Indian food in 2009 while we were in London. We had been told that we had to eat somewhere on Brick Lane. I had always eaten a variety of cuisines growing up but Indian was never one I was exposed to.

This Bobby Flay recipe inspired the whole Indian Spiced Christmas … [Read more...]
