Ingredients

  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala (Indian spice blend)
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 8)
  • 1/2 English cucumber, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup basmati or some other long-grain white rice (brown rice or quinoa maybe good choices too)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (substitute as needed)
Step 1

In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, tomato paste, garam masala, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables, cover, and cook until the chicken is tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).

Step 2

In a small bowl, toss the cucumber and cilantro with the lemon juice and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

Step 3

Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.

Step 4

Just before serving, stir the cream into the chicken tikka masala. Serve over the rice with the cucumber relish.

Chef’s Notes

* Total Time ranges from 4 hours, 10 minutes to 8 hours, 10 minutes

Thank you Real Simple for this recipe.
