  • Transfer chicken and marinade to a slow cooker. Add heavy cream, tomato sauce, garlic, jalapeno pepper, remaining 1 tablespoon garam masala, butter, cumin, paprika, and salt; mix with a ladle to combine.

  • Cover and cook on Low for 5 hours, or on High for 3 hours, until chicken juices run clear.

  • Whisk cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl until completely combined, adding more water if necessary. Add to the slow cooker. Mix in ketchup. Cook on High for an additional 20 minutes. Serve with cilantro.

Cook's Note:

For more heat, you can substitute cayenne pepper for paprika.
