Even if you aren’t familiar with Indian food, you’re sure to love Chicken Tikka Masala, and making it in the slow cooker couldn’t be any easier. This often spicy dish has chunks of chicken in a creamy orange sauce. It’s somewhat similar to butter chicken and is popular all over the world, especially in the UK. This cross-cultural main course is usually served with basmati rice and naan, a popular Indian flatbread. First, the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices before being braised with a masala sauce, a spicy tomato-based sauce, until it’s fall-apart tender. The overnight marinade and unique ingredients might take some time, but chances are you have most of the ingredients in the pantry already. You may want to have extra naan around for dipping and scooping up any extra sauce left on the plate.
