Slow Cooked Chicken Tikka Masala

I am totally in love with my slow cooker.

So totally in love, it gets a work out daily in our house.

As 9-5 workers, coming home and cooking dinner is as appealing as stabbing ourselves with hot pokers. So we bought a slow cooker and lived happily ever after. *Que choir and doves.

Along with our new bible "Woman's weekly slow cooker 2", our most hated time of the day (dinner time) has been saved.

Tonight an amazing miracle occurred. A miracle that involves......chicken.

The meal our slow cooker cooked was so magical i may have even done a naked dance in celebration......maybe.

Cook it and do a naked dance yourself, just don't send me a picture :-)

Chicken Tikka Masala (Sparkle Style)


1kg chicken Maryland's skin removed
800g canned tinned tomatoes
2 large brown onions thinly sliced
2/3 cup Tikka masala paste
200.ml water
Greek yogurt for serving
1 cup loosely packed coriander (optional, i hate it)


Remove skin from chicken.

Cook off onion. Trust me, onion will not cook in the slow cooker if you dont pre cook it. Bastards.

Combine chicken, tinned tomatos, cooked onions, paste and water in a 4.5litre slow cooker. You can adjust your ingredients depending on the size of your slow cooker.

Cook covered on high for 4 hours or low all day long (like me).

Serve with rice and yogurt.

Do joyous naked dance. X

    1. ok, ill accept your naked picture on one condition......you must be dancing and eating at the same time :) x
