Did you know that…
The wildly popular Chicken Tikka Masala is filled with more than delightful Tandoori spices, it’s filled with intrigue. The origin of this triumph of Indian cuisine remains a mystery. To some, its history stretches back 5,000 years to the first use of the tandoor, the Indian clay oven. To others, it is a modern invention created by the British. Whoever is right, our Chicken Tikka Masala is your journey to better culinary experiences on the Saffron Road.

    Almost no chicken - rip-off I got all of 2 small pieces of chicken, really!!! Complete rip-off, not even worth 1 star.

    1 out of 5

    Very little chicken - not worth the price. The product has changed. You have less chicken now and a thinner sauce. Very disappointed I used to love this product. I won't be buying it again.

    declining quality The last several times i've purchased this, there has been less chicken and the sauce has been very watery. This was one of my favorites and looked forward to lunch when i brought this to work. It seems based on other reviews, that quality has begun to slack. Please bring the quality back to what it was when i was getting a better portion of chicken and a creamier sauce!

    Very disappointed with Saffron Road chicken tika masala! Beautiful package. Was looking forward to eating. BUT, maybe only 3 teaspoonsful of chicken!! Rest was just OK..

    One of our Go-To frozen meals. I usually cook from scratch because I need to eat gluten-free, so my husband eats GF too. But when I'm too tired to cook a real dinner, we resort to frozen meals. We frequently enjoy your Chicken Tikka Masala. Sometimes it is a bit skimpy on the sauce or the chicken, but always tasty.

    More like NO-Chicken Tikka Masala It took awhile before I spotted ANY chicken. And: too spicy!!

    Good Taste! I have to say that to see Saffron Road products in a rural area in Kentucky is a fight for sore eyes! I just wish that a wider range of products was present. Anyway, for a frozen meal, the company has hit the nail on the head with this one! Really good and creamy... though slightly bland fir my taste but I know it's how North Indian recipes work. Good job!

    I just tried this product. Very disappointing since there was only one small piece of chicken in it. Over priced for what you get!

    1 out of 5

    for 6 dollars i got 1/3-1/2 cup of cooked rice (1/4 cup uncooked?), an okay Tikka Masala sauce, and 3 TINY pieces of chicken, smaller than my thumbnail tiny. i would happily pay 7$ for the same meal if i could get a full serving of protein in it too. but don't charge me 6$ for a pile of rice, i don't care how tasty your sauce is, it's not that tasty.

    5 out of 5

    This is oh-so-yummy! It has the perfect amount of sauce and rice. I can hardly keep from licking the tray when I've finished.

    5 out of 5

    The Chicken Tikka Masala was the first Saffron Road product that I tried and it continues to be my 'go to'! It's a box of deliciousness and I highly recommend it!!

    4 out of 5

    The chicken is real and good quality. These are the best microwaveable meals I've had.

    5 out of 5

    Tried this on a whim one night while grocery shopping and was utterly surprised, by how tasty and filling the meal was. I am not one who normally eats frozen meals, but I must say I have since purchased several other options and am a happy customer! If you want a quick lunch, with good ingredients and flavor, look no further! Thank you Saffron Road keep up the good work!!

    5 out of 5

    This was the first Saffron Road frozen meal I tried & I'm hooked. This was unbelievably delicious!! Had just enough spice too! This is my new go to for lunch at work.

    1 out of 5

    I was very disappointed to find "three" nuggets of chicken in this meal. The flavor was nice but I felt like I had just eaten an overpriced package of rice!!

    5 out of 5

    Bought this at hannaford in shelburne,vt because i was too short on time to make homeade tikka masala. Saffron Road's version of chicken tikka masala is hands down the best I've tried among many, and had made my house smell fragrant like an Indian restaurant. Will search out this product as often as possible.

    5 out of 5

    Tastes great. Creamy sauce and soft basmati. Could eat it everyday!

    1 out of 5

    I bought this as an experiment, with a plan to stock up on their Vindaloo if the Masala was good. I was very disappointed. The pluses were good rice, and a pleasant aroma. The minuses were an acrid, almost metallic after-taste in the sauce, a dearth of chicken, and a price that was excessive in relation to the contents. When you can get a nice piece of chicken in a fast food sandwich or more meat in a $1 frozen entrée, the price of this item really this stings. If I want Indian food I'll have to opt for a local restaurant, because the Saffron Road option is far from satisfactory.

    5 out of 5

    Oh yes! This is probably the first entree I tasted fromSaffron Road. I honestly wasn't expecting too much from a frozen food dish. However this knocked me out in the right way. No aftertaste at all. The rice is fragrant but not overbearing with the right portion and texture. Of course the chicken tikka is the star of the show with tasty sauce without the heat and decent portions of chicken chunks. Whenever I am in the mood for Indian tikka masala and don't want to go to the restaurant, it is good to know Saffron Road is at my grocery frozen section

    5 out of 5

    So usually when I buy frozen chicken meals they have this strange texture to the chicken. This had a great texture and the sauce was amazing. I could eat this all the time. Does not taste like a from frozen meal at all. Also the price is comparable to other frozen meals making the quality to price value outstanding.

    2 out of 5

    This was on sale so I tried it and was very disappointed by how little actual chicken the dish contained.

    1 out of 5

    I used to eat these multiple times per week, but for some reason the company changed the recipe. Any box with a sell-by date of 2017 or later tastes thin and watery compared to the old recipe. Sadly, i won't be buying any more. For those of you who like the current incarnation, I wish you had been able to taste the old recipe - it was delicious!

    5 out of 5

    I cannot eat enough of tastes wonderful!

    I enjoy East Indian food, so this product really fits the bill.

    5 out of 5

    I bought Chicken tikka masala entree a few weeks back and enjoyed at home late at night. I liked the flavor and taste, just as expected. I do think that if i were eating for lunch i would need two because one would not fill me up, but that could just be me or my appetite. Overall, good product and I am glad there is a halal chicken option in the frozen entree section.

    2 out of 5

    4 tiny pieces of chicken is not enough. The picture on the box shows at least double that... Not worth the 4.99 I paid at the local Von's

    5 out of 5

    This is one of my favorite dishes, Saffron Road! The aroma makes my mouth water while heating in the microwave. The sauce is creamy and perfect over the rice. I can eat this several times a week but I contain myself. Perfect for my work lunches. It leaves me so satisfied and content. Just like a homemade meal!

    5 out of 5

    I bought this and am so happy that I did! Chicken Tikka Masala is absolutely delicious! I will definitely buy again...I'll also ask my store to carry a wider variety of Saffron Road products. I've never been disappointed by any purchase! :)

    5 out of 5

    Strolled past the aisle where these where being sold and I decided to get it a try. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. ate with naan, tasted just like I went to an Indian restaurant. Only wished the portion of rice was the same amount as the Chicken Biryani

    5 out of 5

    Our teenage daughter is often on the run with her friends, and doesn't have time to sit down to dinner with us. I'm glad I can quickly fix this dinner for her and know that she is eating a healthy, gluten free meal. She loves the taste and I wouldn't be surprised if she schedules activities just so she can get to have Saffron Road's Chicken Marsala!

    5 out of 5

    This is my first time ever writing a review on a frozen entrée. I have to say that this was absolutely delicious! I look forward to trying the rest of your products!

    5 out of 5

    Taste and texture made to perfection. You wont be able to guess its a frozen meal.

    5 out of 5

    This is one of my favorite frozen dinners out there. The sauce is pleasantly spicy. The texture of the chicken is great. (I am usually not a fan of chicken in frozen dinners but this really stands up!). Just enough rice to make this a wonderful lunch option for a busy teacher.

    2 out of 5

    I enjoy this cuisine and the illustration on the box looked delicious! Lots of chicken, sauce, rice. However, there were about 3 small pieces of chicken and lots and lots of sauce. The rice was stuck together and dry.

    We recently shifted to the USA and naturally started out in hotels until we found a permanent place. We only eat halal so KFC and McDonalds were out of the question. As well at 32 weeks pregnant and with a 3 year old in tow, dining out was the last thing on my mind. Stocked up from Whole foods and needless to say, I didn't have to worry about late night meals or a quick lunch just before we hit the road apartment hunting. Honestly didnt taste like it came out of a box. You'd think I slaved over a stove for ages to get this dish. Yum!

    5 out of 5

    The perfect lunch. The freezer at worked is stocked

    5 out of 5

    I love this dish, saffron road has saved me now that I have celiac.

    5 out of 5

    These meals are so delicious, and just the right portion to have for lunch on work days!

    5 out of 5

    I just finished my first Chicken Tikka Masala. Holy cow, was that good. It's good my non-frozen meal standards. And to think, I cooked it in the microwave and ate it at my desk. Tastes like something my Indian neighbor made from scratch!

    1 out of 5

    Hello! I love the taste but the last three times I purchased the Tikka Masala, there was so little meat in it, I could not justify the $5 price. I'm not planning on buying it again. I literally had three tiny chunks in it (and I mean quite small). Not sure why?

    5 out of 5

    This is the third dish I have tried from Saffron Road and, once again, the flavors and quality of the meats is still excellent. My only "con" is the same as some other reviewers - the amount of meat in the entree is not as depicted. Lots of yummy sauce! This is something that I hope SR makes adjustments to in the future and is not significant enough for me give a lower rating. The quality and taste win out. No more bland lunches for me!

    1 out of 5

    There was only one piece of chicken about 1"" by 1 1/2" and two other half inch cubes. That was all! The picture on the front shows 8 decent sized chunks of chicken. Either mine was an error on the production line or the item is a rip off. Awfully costly for one ounce of actual meat! I was very disappointed.

    5 out of 5

    This is probably the BEST frozen meal I've ever had. So flavorful and the chicken is delicious, not over-processed like some other frozen meals. So happy I picked this up!

    4 out of 5

    I thought the Chicken Tikka Masala tasted great... so far the best from the other Saffron Road frozen entrees that I've tried! My only criticism would be that I wish it were slightly lower on sodium content. I have not repurchased for that reason.

    5 out of 5

    I just bought this for dinner tonight. I've had Indian food before and liked it but sometimes it can be a little too spicy for me. This dish was delicious and had lots of flavor. I would get it again.

    5 out of 5

    I brought a meal 2 weeks ago at Von's and what caught my eye was the halal certified label. I gave it a try because of that but the meal tasted so good that I look forward to trying all of the other meal recipes.

    1 out of 5

    I have used other products from this company and have been impressed, but not this time. I was greatly looking for ward to enjoying this little dish but when I pulled it out of the microwave, there was no meat in the sauce or box or anywhere. I was very confused looking around for it but never found it. My container was ALL sauce. I mixed a little bit of it with my rice because there was WAY too much sauce. had a few bites and ended up throwing it away. Save your money. The box had NO meat, clearly a mistake by the company that hopefully doesn't happen to anyone else. It didn't even taste good. I like spicy food. I like this dish, but not from this company, not this recipe. It was truly awful. This company should stick to their other products. Very disappointed in this product specifically.

    4 out of 5

    Bought this at my Stop & Shop as I was craving an Indian dish. It was readlly tasty. I think the rice could have used a little extra oomph with some spices or something. But the Tikka Masala sauce was really tasty!

    5 out of 5

    I was looking for alternatives to the freezer foods I grew up with and found Saffron Road. I've loved both the Chicken Pad Thai and the Moroccan Lamb Stew but the Tikka is my favorite so far! It's spicy enough to warm the throat without being overwhelming and the rice is fabulous.

    5 out of 5

    Love this flavor! So unique, glad I tried it! I will be telling my friends to try it as well!

    5 out of 5

    I had never purchased a Saffron Road product before choosing the Chicken Tikka Masala. It was easy and quick to prepare, great tasting, and not artificial tasting. This was an excellent first choice, because it was very good and provides an example of what I hope all the varieties will be like.

    5 out of 5

    As Masala should be a rich and full bodied sauce, there was a certain something added to complement the flavor of the sauce. The rice was delicious and texture was just right, neither drying out nor lumping together. The pleasant aromas from the dish wafted through the lunch room in the office, inspiring coworkers to ask about my lunch. I showed the box and believe them when they said they would be getting some Chicken Tikka Masala.

    5 out of 5

    Tikka masala my favorite. The chicken is so tender and the sauce is so creamy and flavorful. It has just the right spice level. The rice is perfect.

    I grew up a military brat in Germany and we traveled to Italy a few times. This reminded me of our family travels. It was really good. I love Chicken Masala. This was very tasty.

    5 out of 5

    It can be really hard to find gluten free frozen meals that actually taste good, but this is one is great!

    5 out of 5

    Hits the spot when yearning for Indian food. Almost like having a chef.

    Such a tasty and filling meal. Love saffron road!!

    Rice is always perfect- soft and tasty. Chicken amount is acceptable, and all together a perfect lunch to carry and calorie count.

    This is the next best thing to going to an Indian Restaurant...and it costs way less! It has a really nice kick to it and is just delicious! I just really wish it was non-gmo and then I would give it 5 stars.

    5 out of 5

    The spices are just right. I loved the simple ingredients.

    5 out of 5

    I really love Saffron Road Tikki Masala I used to frequent a food court and would eat at this indian cuisine. Saffron Road tastes so close to this. I love how flavorful the spices are and there is just enough of the product.

    5 out of 5

    This is by far my favorite frozen meal! It is just as good as freshly made Chicken Masala! The price is a lot, but worth it for a yummy treating yourself meal.

    5 out of 5

    Every time I bring this tasty dish to work, my colleagues comment on how yummy it smells and how delicious it looks. It tastes great, fills me up, and fits into my healthy-eating plan.

    5 out of 5

    Saffron road products are so delicious! Thank you so much for providing organic tasty entrees that are easy to heat and eat! :)

    I spotted this new line in my local food store and bought one Chicken Tikka Masala just to try it,as I have had other packet curries that did not taste very good before.I had it that night for my meal and was amazed to find that it tasted just as good as any curry I have enjoyed at an Indian Restaurant.Next day I went to that store again and bought every packet of Chicken Tikka Masala they had left on their display.If there were six stars I would award six.

    5 out of 5

    I bought this on my last run to Whole Foods and I knew it was one of the most popular; the taste didn't disappoint -- just as outstanding as every other thing I have had from Saffron Road.

    5 out of 5

    The Chicken Tikka Marsala is restaurant quality food. It is a high quality meal like all the other Saffron Road products I've tried. Hard to believe I can buy this quality of a meal from the grocer's freezer section. I would highly recommend it.

    5 out of 5

    I was so pleasantly surprised to find that the Tikka Masala Chicken was just as good as the kind I have had in restaurants. Spiced nicely, with excellent firm premium chicken, and rice which was cooked by someone who actually knows how to cook rice. This was a wonderful introduction to Saffron Road products!

    5 out of 5

    This is my favorite Saffron Road entrée. It is delicious. The chicken is tender and moist, the rice is firm and nutty and the sauce is simply heaven. A perfect lunch or dinner meal.

    5 out of 5

    Love this Safrron Chicken Tikka Masala. Fresh & Tasty. and healthy. Taste is fantastic!

    5 out of 5

    Saw this in the grocery freezer and gave it a chance. It is as good as fresh from a restaurant! I am so glad I tried it!!

    5 out of 5

    I really like this but can no longer buy it at my Safeway, I have gone to other Safeways and they do not have it in either. It is upsetting and I would like to understand why it isn't available. I live in Santa Clara ca. please let me know how to get it again.

    4 out of 5

    For me, The chicken biryani is the best but this is a close second. I don't know the recipe but its fantastic. Highly recommend this.

    5 out of 5

    I look forward to enjoying the Chicken Tikka Masala entree. The rice and the chicken in sauce come out great out of the microwave. I've had this many times over the years and I can eat the chicken without fear of getting a piece that has gristle in it. That's sounds gross but since I've experienced that with other companies' entrees this is a relief and makes for a pleasant lunch. Anyway the delicious sauce is so plentiful that after eating all the chicken and rice I love to finish the remaining sauce off by scooping it up with my favorite blue corn chips! Then your recyclable tray goes in the dishwasher and eventually the recycling bin.

    5 out of 5

    I bought this a couple of months back, and I I was impressed!

    4 out of 5

    I am always reluctant to try frozen meals especially Indian because they taste so bland. Saffron Road Tikka masala turned out to be tasty with the right level of spice(as much as we can find outside India) and we like that its Non-GMO and raised without antibiotics. We'll be trying their other products too.

    5 out of 5

    Saffron Road Tikka Masala tastes as if I made it in my own kitchen. I love that if I am too busy to cook, I can pop one in the oven and feel good knowing I am eating a delicious, nutritious and healthy meal.

    3 out of 5

    flavor was great, texture seemed a littlte off. will try saffron again.

    5 out of 5

    This is the best Masala-type dish in the frozen food market - even "made from scratch' food market!

    5 out of 5

    This was my my first time buying Saffron Road and I am so happy that I did. The Chicken Tikka Masala is delicious. I can't wait to try all the different varieties .

    5 out of 5

    It was pretty good. It could be a little cheaper, but the flavor was as good as at restaurants.

    4 out of 5

    I bought this a couple of times just the right amount of spices and flavoring!Will definitly buy it again!

    5 out of 5

    Chicken Tika Masala is like restaurant quality. I love that the products are humanely raised and raised without antibiotics. Good food in a hurry that's healthy for a change. I wish my local stores carried the full line of all Saffron Road Products.

    4 out of 5

    This meal was tasty and much better than I expected. It tastes like the best I've had in Indian restaurants, both in America and other countries. My only thumbs down is the rice, which tasted a little undercooked, undoubtedly due to being frozen. But this was only a minor distraction, and the chicken itself was fantastic!

    5 out of 5

    I loved this meal. Brought back memories of that small cafe in Italy during our senior year trip. The Italian class took a bus to Italy my senior year and we had a blast. It is really good and I will buy it again.

    4 out of 5

    I both this a month ago and I'm planning to try other varieties. I loved the authentic taste it had but wished it had more chicken but I guess for the price it's a great frozen meal of you are craving indian

    5 out of 5

    I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is not too spicy… Just right for American tastes. It's a staple in my freezer.

    5 out of 5

    Frozen dinners have the reputation of being over-processed, unpalatable food. The products from Saffron Road are a world apart from the American Standard. My favorite is the Chicken Tikka Masala. It's flavorful, authentic, and good for both you and the environment. My only wish is that more Saffron Road products were available where I live. I'd be on the road again and again!

    5 out of 5

    I always have a few of these on hand to scratch that itch, you know? The chicken tikka masala is well spiced and delicious!

    5 out of 5

    Very good indeed, the taste was great. Congratulations.

    I usually prepare my own Indian recipes, but for a quick lunch this is delicious! Quality ingredients and great taste.

    My husband brought some packages of the Chicken Tikka Masala home a few nights ago. I am very sensitive to spicy food and so appreciated the "heat meter" on the front of the package. The chicken in this dish IS moist and tender; the sauce savory but not blazingly hot. Addition of the yogurt tames the spices as it lends a creamy texture to the Masala sauce. I loved the traditionally Indian taste and texture of the rice, especially combined with a bit of chicken and sauce. We have very few Indian restaurants near where we live -- now we can just reach into the freezer for an assortment of authentic Indian meals. It is important to me that your food is certified Halal.

    5 out of 5

    I absolutely love this. It is so flavorful with just enough spice to make it perfect.

    5 out of 5

    I love Indian cuisine, but my husband does not, so my opportunities to enjoy it is on my own. Your Chicken Tikka Masala is very satisfying with multiple layers of rich and robust flavors. Thank you for also making this gluten free.

    3 out of 5

    I recently moved to the middle of nowhere and am missing good authentic indian (and Asian) food immensely. Saw this in HEB and thought I would give it a try. It's not bad tasting, the flavors are pretty good, but it's far from being good Indian food. Could be because it's a tv dinner though...

    5 out of 5

    Picked this up at a local Publix store a few days ago, and I'm surprised how good this is! I expected the Medium Heat to be very mild, based on what is typically sold in the US grocery stores, but this had some kick to it. Would love to try several of the other varieties!

    5 out of 5

    I've had this dish plenty of times while eating out, and this is the first time I can remember buying something in a store that tasted like a real Indian restaurant.

    2 out of 5

    I'm British and I have to say that this dish had way to much lemon for my taste. However I will try your other entrees.

    5 out of 5

    A True Classic Dish! Love Indian Food...Love Saffron Road Foods!
