Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Indian food and all the wonderful spices used in that type of cooking.  It was intimidating to me at first, but honestly it's not that different from making homemade spaghetti sauce.  You just need a few spices that you can find in any grocery store, and you're off to India!  

I found this recipe on Pinterest, and I decided to make it early Sunday morning.  We even left the house to run some errands, then when we came home dinner was ready! 

This recipe is not that hot, but it's really flavorful.  If you are scared of the jalapenos, omit them. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala 



For the chicken: 

9 whole boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 tbsp. ground coriander
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
1 whole jalapeno chopped into rings 

For the sauce: 

4 tbsp. butter
1 whole large onion, peeled, and diced
6 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tbsp. kosher salt
3 tbsp. garam masala
1 piece of ginger, about 2-3 inches, peeled and very finely minced
1 can crushed tomatoes 
1 tbsp. sugar
2 - 3 tbsp. heavy cream 

For serving: 

4 cups cooked rice
cilantro for garnish 

Cut the chicken thighs into 1 inch pieces.  Place inside your crockpot.  Sprinkle the coriander, cumin, and salt all over the chicken.  Then stir in the yogurt until all the chicken is evenly coated.  Place half of the sliced jalapeno on top of the chicken.  



Melt butter in a medium saute pan over medium high heat.  Add the onions, garlic, and salt then stir.  Cook, stirring frequently, until the onions begin to lightly brown around the edges.  



Stir in the garam masala and ginger and cook about one minute, then add tomatoes and sugar.  Stir well, scrape bottom of pan for all the good bits, and bring to a boil.  Pour this sauce over the chicken.  Do not mix with chicken!  



I placed jalapenos on top of the tomato mixture, because we like it HOT! :) 



Cover and cook in your crockpot for 5 hours, or until chicken is very tender.  

Pour heavy cream into the slow cooker and stir gently.  Replace lid and let cook for another 10 minutes.  

Serve with hot rice and top it with lots of fresh cilantro!
