    Expensive and not as good as the TJ’s frozen chicken tikka masala.

    Surprisingly good, this does taste like a real Indian restaurant take-out meal. It was better than I expected – the chicken in this one was a lot more tender than the type used in the Trader Joe’s frozen version of chicken tikka masala.

    The one aspect of taste that I would say that makes the frozen version slightly better is the flavor — the flavor in the frozen chicken tikka masala is actually more mouthwatering. However, the chicken in that one can be pretty tough.

    This is also several dollars more expensive than the frozen version (though it does have a bigger portion).

    Not worth the buy!

    I was excited to try this as another customer had it in hand while I was shopping, and said it was good.

    Unfortunately, no. The flavor is very off- taste a bit like barbecue sauce. I prefer the frozen chicken tikka masala for sure. I had to add my own seasonings to make this digestible.

    We love this version, though it seems like one container is too small for two servings. Not fond of any frozen meals, so I do have a built in prejudice.

    I like this version because it is a little less spicy than the frozen version. I like to break the few pieces of large chicken up while heating it in a skillet. It pairs well with the Naan or the other round Indian bread they sell. If I am VERY hungry it makes one meal.

    We prefer the refrigerated version for two reasons: It’s one big hearty serving, or two very modest servings; while the frozen version is more suitable for people who count calories as their form of nutrition control and for people who prefer spicy food. But the fresh version still tastes of Indian spices. And you’d need two boxes of the frozen version to feel at all satiated. At home, if we want more flavor, we add more herbs and spices, and throw in fresh steamed broccoli to make any prepared meal more hearty and nutritious. I sometimes toss cashews or almonds on top; pistachios might also add good flavor and crunch.

    Very disappointed. Says 2 portions. This is true for rice and sauce but less than 3.5 oz chicken for 2. I guess 1 gets 2 oz and the other gets 1.5 oz. We are not big eaters but I don’t think 1.5 oz is adequate.

    This Chicken Tikka Masala is devine. It’s not spicy hot (anyone can make it spicy hot), but the collection of spices in this dish is sublime. The flavors pop on your tongue. I love hot Indian and Indonesian food, but everything doesn’t have to be spicy hot. Excessive spicy heat can overwhelm the other flavors of the food.
