This is another great way to use super lean chicken tenderloins and add a ton of flavor while still maintaining fantastic macros!  Serve it over cauliflower rice, steamed quinoa, or regular steamed rice if you need more good carbs.

Ingredients

Spice Base

  • 3 Tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 onions finely chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper Medium heat - add more or less as desired
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground tumeric

Finalizing Tikka Masala Base

  • 30 fl oz tomato sauce
  • 16.9 fl oz coconut milk
  • 4 tsp paprika
  • 16 drops liquid stevia extract

Protein!

  • 1500 g chicken tenderloins diced
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Heat ghee in a large Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat.  Add the chopped onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Stir in minced garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Then, stir in all the spices except for paprika:  cumin, salt, ginger, cayenne pepper, cinnamon and turmeric.  Mix in with the onions and fry for about 2 minutes until fragrant.

  2. Stir tomato sauce into the spiced onion mixture and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low.  Simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes.  Then add in the coconut milk, paprika, and liquid stevia.  Bring sauce back to a simmer and cook for about 10-15 minutes, stirring often.

  3. Season raw diced chicken tenderloins with the curry powder and salt. Spray a thin layer of cooking spray to a nonstick pan and heat over medium heat.  Add to the hot pan and sear chicken until lightly browned but still pink inside, about 3 minutes.  Transfer chicken and any juices into the sauce, and simmer until no longer pink, about 30 minutes.
