Favorite Recipe Friday: Crockpot Chicken Tikka Masala

Reasons I love this recipe:

  • Tastes SOO good.
  • Chicken melts in my mouth.
  • Super easy.
  • Crockpot doesn’t overheat apartment in the warm months.
  • I usually have most of these ingredients on hand. Garam masala was not an everyday spice for me, so I made a special order. It was totally worth it because I LOVE this recipe so much.
