Mediterranean Pasta with Mussels

Chicken Tikka Masala




1 cup plain yogurt, whisked until smooth

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into large bite-sized chunks

3 Tbsp. Patak’s Tandoori Paste

1 jar Patak’s Tikka Masala Curry Simmer Sauce

2 cups dry white wine

2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

4 bay leaves

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

4 lbs. small mussels, scrubbed and debearded

1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

3 Tbsp. butter, melted

1 lb. Colavita Fettucine

1 tsp. kosher salt ½ tsp. ground black pepper

Salt and pepper to taste

Canola oil, for grilling Fresh cilantro, minced Cooked rice



In a large pot, combine wine, bay leaves and Italian seasoning and bring to a boil. Add the mussels, cover and cook over high heat until mussels open. Drain mussels over a medium bowl.

In a large bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Marinate at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Warm the Tikka Masala Curry in a large skillet over medium heat. Heat grill and lightly brush grates with oil. Place chicken on grill, shaking off excess marinade. Cook until it’s charred, about 2 minutes on each side (chicken will finish cooking in the sauce). Add grilled chicken to curry and cook about 10 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve over rice. Serves 4.
