Kevin and I go BANANAS for the Indian lunch buffet where we can try all the different foods but when we hit our favorite Indian restaurants for dinner, we tend to stick to the basics. Chicken Tikka Masala is a safe dish if you are new to Indian food and it is still delicious.
The other night I thought I’d try my hand at making Tikka Masala at home and it came out pretty great if I do say so myself.
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce. The liquidy stuff like this:
1/2 cup of heavy cream (you can sub with milk if you don’t have the cream but the cream is better)
3 tbsp melted butter
1 package Tikka Masala seasoning (I used Simply Asia)
1/2 chopped onion (you can use onion flakes if you want but you do lose a little flavor)
3 large chicken breasts
White rice (optional)
Pour tomato sauce, cream. and butter in crockpot and mix. Add onion, chicken, and cilantro. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
You can shred the chicken if you like.
I served mine over white rice with a side of naan.
