Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

Rated as 4.23 out of 5 Stars

"Everyone's favorite Indian take-out dish, made at home quickly and simply. Even husbands can do it! Chicken thighs can hold up to a long, slow cook time; they may shred if left in for too long but the dish will still be just as delicious. You can easily double this recipe. It freezes well."

I served mine over basmati rice. This chicken was delicious, but next time I'll make it spicier.
