Just when you think chicken Tikki Masala can’t get any better, you remember your trusty and dependable friend, the slow cooker. There are literally endless dishes that can be set in the crock and left to cook in their own juices, seasonings and sauces. Everyone knows, this creates flavors that are above and beyond most other methods, save grilling and smoking which also add a unique taste. Anyway, I was stoked to get going on this one and see how the family liked it. They’d had Tikki Masala before but the experiment was underway.
I really think the crock pot sets us up for a successful meal, because the smell takes over the house and gets everyone pumped for dinner. That’s exactly what happened! The garlic and ginger combo as well as masala spices were strong and my mouth was watering. We served the dish over basmati rice. Throwing everything together before work or a busy day makes this perfect, but you can marinate your chicken in Greek yogurt for a bit if you have time.
