Ingredient List

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Hellmann’s mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)

For the Bengal Tiger Sauce:

  • ½ cup Hellmann’s mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp tandoori masala
  • 1 tsp curry powder

This recipe calls for mostly pantry staples that you’re likely to have on hand already. The highlight of the ingredients list is definitely the boneless skinless chicken breasts, which are a choice cut of meat for any easy, protein-forward meal. The Hellmann’s mayonnaise and cream of chicken soup act as the base of the sauce, and help that delicious flavor soak into every bite of the chicken.

The curry powder is what gives this recipe its signature Indian flavor note — it’s savory, warm, and a little bit spicy. Lemon juice adds just the right level of acidity to cut through the creaminess of the sauce. Plus, if you love cheese like I do, feel free to top off each serving with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

For the Bengal Tiger Sauce, you’ll need more Hellmann’s mayonnaise and some sour cream to create a smooth, tangy texture that enhances the spices in the dish. We’ll add two teaspoons of tandoori masala, another signature Indian spice blend that includes turmeric, garam masala, cayenne pepper, and ginger powder. Curry powder is also included here to give it an extra spicy kick. Together, all these ingredients make one amazing sauce!

The Bengal Tiger Chicken recipe is already a remarkable creation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with it. I am always up for trying something new, so here are some variations and substitutions that you can try:

Firstly, you can swap the chicken breasts for chicken thigh fillets if you’re looking for something juicier. Although boneless and skinless breasts are recommended for this recipe, chicken thighs will provide you with succulent meat and a stronger flavor.

If you want to switch up the seasoning, add some Tandoori Masala to give it an earthy aroma or some extra curry powder for more heat. You can also get creative with the sauce by adding sliced onions or red peppers when cooking.

For those who prefer a creamier texture, instead of using Hellmann’s mayonnaise, use 1 cup of creamy chicken soup and 1 oz of cream cheese. This variation will give your dish more moisture and richness.

A unique substitution that you can try is swapping out the chicken altogether. Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry is also a delectable dish that contains similar seasoning to this recipe but replaces the chicken with lentils for a vegan-friendly meal.

Lastly, if you want to make things even more thrilling, have some fun with serving options. For example, transform this dish into “Bengal Tiger Ribs” by substituting boneless skinless chicken breasts for lamb chops or baby back ribs.

In conclusion, the Bengal Tiger Chicken Recipe is highly customizable. You can experiment in various ways with spices and substitutions to create your version of this fantastic dish. Whether it’s tweaking the sauce recipe or modifying serving options completely, there’s no shortage of possibilities to keep your taste buds entertained!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

The Bengal Tiger Chicken is a recipe that can be made ahead of time, stored and reheated for optimal convenience. When making this chicken dish, it’s best to plan ahead for parties or busy weeknights by preparing the recipe a day or two beforehand for maximum flavor.

To make ahead, follow the recipe instructions closely and let the chicken cool completely before storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can even freeze the chicken for later use. In this case, make sure to thaw the chicken completely before reheating.

To reheat, there are a few methods that you can try depending on your preference. If you want to keep it moist and flavorful, reheating in the oven is recommended. To do this, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and place the chicken in a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake it for 20-25 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

Another method is to reheat on the stovetop. This method is quick and easy but may result in slightly dry chicken if not done correctly. Simply heat up a non-stick pan over medium heat, add a small amount of oil or butter, and cook the chicken until heated through.

It’s important to note that reheating should only be done once to avoid spoilage of the food. Avoid microwaving as much as possible as it can make the chicken dry and rubbery.

Overall, making ahead, storing and reheating Bengal Tiger Chicken is a great way to save time without sacrificing flavor. Don’t hesitate to give it a try next time you have a gathering or crave an Indian-inspired feast at home.

As a home chef myself, I understand the importance of having tips that can make a significant difference in the outcome of your dish. So, here are some tips to make sure your Bengal Tiger Chicken recipe turns out perfect every time.

Tip 1: Use Fresh Ingredients

Be sure to use fresh ingredients, especially chicken, for this recipe. Freshness affects the taste and texture of the final dish. If you’re unsure about the freshness of your chicken, give it a quick sniff, and if it feels slimy or appears discolored, don’t use it.

Tip 2: Don’t Overcook or Undercook the Chicken

Cooking boneless skinless chicken breasts might be daunting for some as they tend to dry out quickly or become chewy. When cooking the chicken breasts, bake them until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Overcooking can dry out the chicken while undercooking poses a risk for foodborne illness.

Tip 3: Experiment with Different Spices

If you have a preferred spice blend, consider mixing it in with the curry powder and Hellmann’s mayonnaise mixture to give the Bengal Tiger Chicken recipe a unique twist. You can experiment with tandoori masala or even butter chicken spices to switch things up.

Tip 4: Make Ahead and Store Properly

You can prepare and refrigerate the Bengal Tiger Chicken a day in advance so that you have more time on your big day to relax with your guests. Additionally, store leftover Bengal Tiger Chicken in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days or freeze it for up to three months.

Tip 5: Serve with Appropriate Sides
