Cheat's Chicken Makhani

This was dinner on Friday. This is such a cheat's recipe as it uses pre packed chicken tikka pieces but it totally works. The flavours were lovely and it was so quick to whip up, prefect when I got home from work knackered on Friday. I added some spinach into the pan for the last 2-3 mins of cooking time for no extra points. I served it with 50g brown rice (5) and 1 tbsp mango chutney (2).

Put the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, ginger, garlic, chilli powder and chicken stock in a saucepan and simmer briskly for 10 mins to reduce.

Stir in the ground almonds, sugar and chicken tikka pieces. Gently heat through for 7 mins and then stir in the low fat spread and garam masala. Serve.
