I am sucker for paleo  Indian recipes, the spices and the exoticness of the cuisine calls to me.  When you combine that love with a time saving recipe, you have my attention. I knew when I opened up my copy of  Meals Made Simple, I had to make the Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala.

Danielle Walker much anticipated second cookbook, Meals Made Simple , is a packed to the gills with delicious Paleo recipes for those who are looking for quick and easy recipes.   She has also taken the guess work out of meal planning and included eight weeks worth of dinner ideas,  complete with full shopping lists and recipes for using up leftovers.

Ok, this recipe is meant to go in the slow cooker, something I realized a little too late for dinner time.  I followed Danielle’s directions and put it in my tajine and cooked it for 2 hours and it was still 100% awesome.  I served it over some cauliflower rice and, let’s just say I had seconds :)
