Tikka Masala Oven Fries!

 coated and ready for the oven
I just LOVE Chicken Tikka Masala! So why not make an Oven Fries version! I'm always looking for new and unique potato recipes, so this was a no brainer!

All I did was use my favorite (tweaked) Chicken Tikka Masala Recipe from 'Kat's Kitchen Talk' blog and instead of using chicken I just used russet potatoes that I cut into steak fries! It turned out perfectly delicious! I served this with a nice side salad and it was a tasty vegetarian dinner!
