The slow cooker provides a great vessel for preparing both traditional foods and those with more complex flavors. This easy tikka masala is brimming with the spices of India. Serve with flat-bread or Simple Salad (here).

16 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast 1 cup diced onion 1 cup diced fresh tomatoes 1 teaspoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon smoked paprika ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth 2 tablespoons heavy cream or coconut cream ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro, for garnish

1. Put the chicken, onion, tomatoes, coriander, cumin, paprika, red pepper flakes, ginger, and chicken broth in the slow cooker. Stir to combine the ingredients.

2. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and the tomatoes and onions are soft.

3. Allow the dish to rest in the slow cooker, uncovered, for 10 minutes, then stir in the heavy
cream. Garnish each serving with the cilantro.

COOKING TIP The fat in heavy cream acts as a stabilizer, making the cream less likely to curdle when added to hot food.

SUBSTITUTION TIP To ensure this dish is Gluten-Free, use gluten-free low-sodium chicken broth, and use the coconut cream instead of the heavy cream to make it Allergy Friendly.
