Slow cooker chicken tikka masala

Slow cooker chicken tikka masala HLH

Day 23

I really enjoy Indian food and loved the flavours of garam masala, tomatoes and yoghurt in this dish.  This was also really popular with the boys and my 4yo shouted ‘this is good chicken!’ in the middle of dinner.  I love how adventurous their little tastebuds can be – it’s always surprising.

The jalapeno didn’t add nearly as much heat as I expected, so next time I might split the jalapeno completely rather than just pierce it for flavour.

    EXCELLENT recipe!! I use this every couple of weeks for something special. I use a fair bit of rice to have beside it so I usually get about 5 meals!! Tastes amazing! Thought I’d leave a comment after using it for about 5 months now! With the jalapeno, yes, I just cut it in half lengthways and throw it in – and throw in a couple of bay leaves.. Why not? Thanks.

    Do you put the chicken in the slow cooker raw? I’m so scaird of not cooking it properly & getting sick (new to slow cooking, this is my first recipe)

    Hi Hannah – the chicken goes in raw. Just follow the suggested cooking times & you can’t go wrong.
