This gluten-free, paleo, wild diet-approved chicken tikka masala is one of my favorites. It’s full of authentic Indian flavors—onion, garlic, ginger, garam masala, curry powder, and full-fat coconut milk. All these flavors blend together in the crock pot, so by the time you get home everyone will be salivating and dinner will be ready to eat.
Just thinking about it is making me hungry.
Prepping this dish is a cakewalk. It only takes 20 minutes. And once it’s in the slow cooker, get outside and enjoy the day—no need to be cooped up in the kitchen.
We like to use chicken thighs in this recipe because they’re an inexpensive cut of meat, and rich in nutrients like taurine, iron, zinc, and selenium as well as vitamins A, K and the B complex vitamins. Plus, the dark meat tastes so good slow-cooked in this creamy tomato sauce.
Also in our recipe, we exchange the typical white rice or naan bread with quick and easy cauliflower rice. You still have that same great rice texture, but without the carbs—and bonus points for getting in an extra serving of veggies!
