Not From Scratch

If you are looking for a Chicken Tikka Masala recipe made from scratch, this is not for you. I’m a busy mom and only sharing my technique for how I make this dish in my Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

Tikka Masala Sauce

Chicken tikka is an Indian dish. The masala sauce was added to satisfy the desire of British people to have their meat served in gravy. Chicken tikka masala sauce usually includes tomato purée, cream, coconut cream and spices. The sauce is orange because of the turmeric and paprika spices.

You can make your own sauce from scratch, but to save time for this dish, I’ve found some great flavorful tikka masala sauces.  The brand pictured below is what I like to use for my dinners. I like this brand because it’s not overly spicy and perfect for my personal tastes. You can find a lot of great sauces on Amazon as well.

How to make Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

This chicken only takes 8 minutes to cook, but it will take 10 -12 minutes for your Instant Pot to pre-heat. For a total of about 18-20 minutes of hands free cooking, you can’t beat it!

Pour a few tablespoons of sauce into the Instant Pot pan and add boneless skinless chicken thighs. Cover the chicken with more sauce and add a small amount of water. I used coconut water to give it a sweeter flavor.

You’ll have plenty of sauce when it’s done which is perfect for spooning over rice.

Shred or slice the chicken and place onto a serving plate, spoon more sauce over the top of the chicken and serve with jasmine rice and warm naan.

Spicy Chili Lime 10 Minute Sheet Pan Salmon Recipe

With our busy lives, I’m a huge fan of sheet pan dinners and I’m happy to share this new sheet pan salmon recipe that I think you’re going to LOVE!

When I travel, I love trying new food. I was lucky enough to visit the island of St. John, right before Hurricane Irma slammed into the island. While there, I ate at The Longboard where they served up the most amazing spicy Brussels sprouts that I had ever eaten. When I asked about the spices, they said they used Sambal Oelek. Sambal Oelek is a chili paste made fiery red chilies, vinegar and salt. I had never heard of this! So I immediately ran out and got some when I got home. You can find it at most grocery stores and it will change your life! I use it in so many dishes now.

Sambal chili paste is the perfect addition to this Sheet Pan Salmon recipe. A mixture of lime juice, honey and Sambal Oelek makes this salmon, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and peppers a mouthwatering dinner!

Spicy Garlic Sausage Sliders

We now take a break from my typical fiesta of baked goods and chocolate to bring you, what my husband admiringly declared, “DUDE FOOD.”

Yes, these Spicy Garlic Sausage Sliders are going to be the hero of my big game buffet come this Sunday, but don’t for one second think that my lady-like tastebuds weren’t SIIIINGING when I tasted this:

These sausage sliders are a piece of cake to prep in advance and then warm up in oven when you’re ready to serve. I like things to be easy—and super tasty—so building this recipe around Johnsonville Bratwurst Sausages brought a ton of flavor so that I could add some of our other favorite flavor categories. 

Flavor categories such as…cheesy, garlicy, and juuuuust spicy enough.

Need more big game recipe inspiration using your favorite Johnsonville sausage? Then check out Johnsonville’s new online reality show, The Sausage Dome — a fun cooking competition where sausage loving social celebs and enthusiasts present their sausage-based Big Game recipes to a panel of six Johnsonville employee members called The Sausage Six.

Now…are you ready to see how to create a sausage slider that will bring your big game party guests to their feet (cheering and praising your kitchen ninja skills?)

Let’s do this…

SPICY GARLIC SAUSAGE SLIDERS

Meet your team…

Now, you can use any dinner roll, but I can’t peer pressure you enough into getting your hands on some pretzel rolls. They crisp up so wonderfully in the oven and are chewy and sturdy enough to handle the flavor fiesta that’s coming for you…

Johnsonville Brats Original Bratwurst. RUN DO NOT WALK. You can grill these or cook them in a frying pan. I was pretty set on grilling, but then I stepped outside into the Utah winter and thought. NOPE. NOPE. NOPE.

While you’re cooking your brats, you can also sauté your peppers in a separate frying pan. 

When they are soft and sweet, set them aside. 

Grab a pyrex baking dish and set to work slicing your pretzel buns and slathering them with spicy mustard. We used a horseradish variety and think my husband may have finished off the jar with a spoon. 

 Assemble the sliders as follows, from the bottom up:
-mustard
-sliced sausage (2-3 slices per slider)
-sauted peppers
-swiss cheese
-top bun

 Prepare butter sauce by melting butter and combining with crushed garlic and red pepper flakes. Once you’ve assembled all of the sandwiches, give that butter sauce one last stir and pour it over each sandwich. Try not to drool on the sandwiches…

Place in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and the butter sauce is nice and bubbly. LIKE THIS. (Warning: your kitchen will smell like buttery garlicy HEAVEN.)

Serve and enjoy! 

 

SPICY GARLIC SAUSAGE SLIDERS
*Makes six slider sandwiches.

Ingredients:

  • Johnsonville Brats Original Bratwurst 
  • Pretzel Buns (or dinner rolls)
  • Swiss Cheese (one slice per slider)
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Green Bell Pepper
  • Spicy Mustard
  • Butter – 5 Tablespoons
  • Crushed Garlic – 2 teaspoons
  • Red Pepper Flakes – 1 teaspoon
  • Salt + Pepper – to taste
  • Oil – 1-2 Tablespoons (I used avocado oil)

Directions:

  1. Cook Johnsonville Brats according to package directions (either on the grill or in a frying pan) and set aside. Once cool to the touch, slice diagonally to get 4-5 slice per brat.
  2. Slice and sauté bell peppers in oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  3. Prepare butter sauce by melting butter and combining with crushed garlic and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  4. Slice buns and place in a 9×13 pyrex baking dish.
  5. Assemble the sliders as follows, from the bottom up:
    -mustard
    -sliced sausage (2-3 slices per slider)
    -sautéed peppers
    -swiss cheese
    -top bun
    (If you’re making these ahead, stop here and cover the sliders, and refrigerate.)
  6. Once you’ve assembled all of the sandwiches, give that butter sauce one last stir and pour it over each sandwich.
  7. Place in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes (15 if refrigerated) until the cheese is melted and the butter sauce is nice and bubbly.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
