Chicken Tikka Masala

This Indian dish builds tremendous flavor by spending hours simmering away on the stove, but who has hours to watch over a dish? Let your slow cooker do all the work instead. The chicken is cooked with a traditional Indian spice, garam masala. Garam means "hot" and masala means "a mixture of spices" --- this spice blend carries a deep, smokey flavor with subtle heat. It produces a ton of rich, creamy sauce and rice is the perfect vessel to get the sauce from the plate to your mouth.
