Try your hand at making an authentic Indian-style chicken tikka masala, right in your slow cooker. Boneless chicken thighs gain a coating of traditional Indian spices such as coriander, turmeric and garam masala, and cooked into a rich tomato-based sauce. A handful of fresh chopped cilantro adds a burst of freshness and ties the whole dish together. Make this dish a meal by serving it with fresh steamed jasmine rice and/or fresh baked naan bread.
Although a traditional chicken masala dish would be cooked on the stovetop or in the oven, this modernized version is prepared in a slow cooker. If you prefer white meat or want something that shreds more easily, use chicken breast instead of thighs. This dish can be made in just a few hours while on the high setting, or have the masala cook low and slow all day on low. Either way, you're going to end up with a healthy and tasty meal that will leave your house smelling great.
