Simple Chicken Tikka Masala Slow Cooker Recipe – Serves 4
This Slow Cooker recipe is so easy as it requires very little preparation. Authentic indian dishes can contain a long list of ingredients if cooking from scratch – this recipe is quick and easy and tastes fantastic!
Lazy but Tasty!
You will need:
1 x Standard Slow Cooker
4 x Skinless Chicken Breasts (I use free range)
1 x Onion (diced)
1 x Tin/Carton of Chopped Tomatoes
1/2 Jar of Tikka Masala Paste (I use Pataks)
2 x Tablespoons of double cream or natural yogurt for a lower fat version
1. Turn Slow Cooker on High
2. Dice onion and add to Slow Cooker
3. Cube chicken and add to Slow Cooker
4. Stir in 1/2 Jar (approx. 150g) of Tikka Masala Paste
5. Stir in Chopped Tomatoes
6. Replace lid and turn to Low – leave 6-8 hours
7. 15 minutes before serving remove lid and add cream/yogurt and stir
Serve with Rice and/or Naan
Please remember that whilst cooking you should not lift the Slow Cooker lid as this increases cooking time by 20 minutes each time you take a peek! Ensure that chicken is covered by the sauce before cooking and then there is no need to stir during cooking. Leave at least 6 hours to ensure chicken is cooked throughout – you can leave longer – I do!
Spread the word and let’s start a Slow Cooker revolution!
