Chicken Tikka Masala – Slow Cooker

October 18, 2012

It stands to reason that the next recipe to be featured on Cooking D’Lites would come from the opposite side of the world from the last one, right?  Well, that’s just exactly what happened.  We went half way around the globe for today’s featured recipe.

Our good friend Dave Hahn from California was in town for the evening.  We had invited him for dinner and wanted to prepare something really special. 

Actually, we featured this dish, Chicken Tikka Masala, once before on our blog.  It was the very first recipe we posted.  This recipe differs slightly from the last.  This one is prepared in a slow cooker rather than the Chicken being grilled.  The ingredients differ somewhat. And this one can be prepped in about 10 minutes. 

That’s it.  This dish is Quick, Easy and So Delicious.

From our kitchen to yours.  Enjoy the adventure.
