Chicken with Mixed Peppers (Murgh Mirch Masala)

Chicken with Mixed Peppers (Murgh Mirch Masala)

This is a quick and easy Tikka Masala dish, with the added crunch of red and green peppers. The tangy taste of the Tikka Masala really comes through here - wonderful flavours of lemon, coriander and turmeric with tomato. Blended with the hearty 'meatiness' of the capsicums, this dish has real flavour and substance.
