Butter chicken vs chicken tikka masala

Hi all,

Just wondering what the difference between these two classic indian dishes are. I googled them and the only stuff I came up with is that the butter chicken is an authentic indian dish (murgh makhani) while the other is a british invention. When I look up recipes though, they seem fairly similar. Is there something unique that distinguishes them (marinade, cooking method, spices,...). Any enlightenment would be appreciated fellow chowhounders!
