Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

We love trying new slow cooker recipes out on the weekends... it's so easy to prep in the morning, turn on the slow cooker, add ingredients, and forget about it until dinner time. We have made quite a few slow cooker chilis, soups, and stews so we decided to try something totally different today!

Chicken Tikka Masala, tender chunks of chicken cooked in a creamy, aromatic tomato cream sauce, is probably one of the most popular dishes on any Indian restaurant menu here in the states. Now you can have it at home, with barely any work! It's sooo delicious. Serve with rice or warm naan flat bread.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
original recipe from


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts – cubed
  • 1 medium onion – diced
  • 15 oz can coconut milk – light
  • 1 cup plain yogurt – low fat
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons grated ginger root
  • 2 garlic cloves – grated
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne 

Place cubed chicken breasts and diced onion in the bottom of a slow cooker.

In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk, yogurt, tomato paste, ginger, garlic, garam masala, cornstarch, salt and cayenne.

Pour mixture over the chicken and onion and stir well.

Cook on Low for 6 hours or High for 3 hours. Serve with basamati or brown rice.

Wow, this was one super flavorful, exciting slow cooker dish!! Your house will smell amazing too... so many aromatic spices in this recipe. We will definitely be making this Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala again. YUM!!!

Enjoy! :)
