Is it possible to make chicken tikka masala in a crock pot? Sorry, I know nothing about crock pots.

Asked by lalelalela (27points) November 9th, 2010

I have no idea how to use a crock pot. Or how to cook. I love Tikka Masala. I’d like too cook a large portion of it at once and eat leftovers throughout the week. Can I make Tikka Masala in a crock pot?

Ideally, I could just buy some sauce like this stuff, pour it into the crock pot, dice up some chicken breast and throw it in there as well…maybe add some diced tomatoes, onions…and after 4–5 hours voila?

Would this work? Simple yes or no.

I think so, Crock Pots are pretty cool. Tikka Masala is that, Indian food? So that would be chicken and spices right, I don’t see why that wouldn’t work. Crock Pots can cook really slow, making the meat tender. A good way to use one is to prepare it in the morning, and cook it all day while you’re at work, then it should be done by the time you’re home. I don’t know what temp you should put it on, med-high?? You’re gonna have to experiment or get more info.

My favorite too. I hadn’t thought about a crock pot for it but I would think it would work if you did the chicken marinated in the yogurt/spice the night before and then throw it in the crock with the remaining sauce ingredients on low for at least 6 hours – or high for at least 4 hours.

Oh, hey. Here’s a 4.5 star recipe I might just have to try.

Tikka masala would be great in a crockpot, on low. is great for learning how to cook something new.

I enjoy making many indian dishes, and I definitely would try to make Tikka Masala in a crock pot- being a fan of the old crock put as is, but with indian spices I can see the marinated meats being a more effective approach, try cutting some tender lamb in place of chicken, and add some onions that have been cooked with oil in a non stick pan to your crock pot mixture I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
