Dinner Rescue: My Secret Weapon from Costco!

Credit: Sukhis

I’m about to share a game-changer for those chaotic weeknights. With a circus of kids and activities to juggle, the last thing I need is a dinner dilemma. That’s where my trusty sidekick swoops in: Costco’s Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala.

Picture this: It’s Tuesday or Thursday (or any day that ends in ‘y’, really), and my life resembles a whirlwind of basketball hoops, chess boards, soccer balls, and mysterious homework assignments. Takeout seems like the obvious answer, especially when Indian food is calling our names. But let’s be real, feeding a family of five on takeout can drain the bank account faster than you can say “naan bread.”

So, I turned to my hero: Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala. For just $14.99*, Costco blesses me with two generous pouches of creamy, spiced curry goodness. And here’s the kicker: I can whip up a mouthwatering meal in under 15 minutes flat. Cue the applause!

Now, let me spill the beans on how I transform this Costco gem into a feast fit for a hungry clan:

First up, I empty those magical pouches into a pot big enough to handle the flavor explosion. But wait, there’s more! I toss in a can of full-fat coconut milk and a can of chickpeas (because why not sneak in some extra protein and veggie power?). Give it a good stir, pop a lid on that pot, and let the flavors mingle and dance for about 10 minutes on the stove.

Feeling adventurous? I sometimes sprinkle in a dash of garam masala or crushed red pepper flakes for an extra kick. But honestly, this curry shines all on its own. If you’re a salt fiend like me, a taste test and a pinch of salt might be all it needs.

Now, here’s where the magic of convenience comes in. Trader Joe’s saves the day with their frozen garlic naan and pre-made rice. A quick toast in the toaster and a zap in the microwave, and voila! Dinner is served without breaking a sweat (or the bank).

The best part? This flavor-packed feast costs me around $20. Yep, you read that right. Twenty bucks for a meal that saves my sanity and satisfies the whole fam? Sign me up for a lifetime membership!

So, there you have it, folks. Costco’s Sukhi’s Chicken Tikka Masala: the unsung hero of my dinner table. It’s quick, it’s delicious, and it’s budget-friendly. What more could a busy parent ask for? Here’s to simpler dinners and happier bellies!
