Not From Scratch

If you are looking for a Chicken Tikka Masala recipe made from scratch, this is not for you. I’m a busy mom and only sharing my technique for how I make this dish in my Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

Tikka Masala Sauce

Chicken tikka is an Indian dish. The masala sauce was added to satisfy the desire of British people to have their meat served in gravy. Chicken tikka masala sauce usually includes tomato purée, cream, coconut cream and spices. The sauce is orange because of the turmeric and paprika spices.

You can make your own sauce from scratch, but to save time for this dish, I’ve found some great flavorful tikka masala sauces.  The brand pictured below is what I like to use for my dinners. I like this brand because it’s not overly spicy and perfect for my personal tastes. You can find a lot of great sauces on Amazon as well.

Tikka Masala Sauce


How to make Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

This chicken only takes 8 minutes to cook, but it will take 10 -12 minutes for your Instant Pot to pre-heat. For a total of about 18-20 minutes of hands free cooking, you can’t beat it!

Pour a few tablespoons of sauce into the Instant Pot pan and add boneless skinless chicken thighs. Cover the chicken with more sauce and add a small amount of water. I used coconut water to give it a sweeter flavor.

Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

You’ll have plenty of sauce when it’s done which is perfect for spooning over rice.

Shred or slice the chicken and place onto a serving plate, spoon more sauce over the top of the chicken and serve with jasmine rice and warm naan.

What is an Air Fryer?

The air fryer is a less messy, quick and healthy way to fry your food. We LOVE ours! I got mine at Costco, but I’ve heard great things about this one. My son and husband have been using it non-stop. For a couple of guys who never cook, I’m amazed by the things they are frying up in the air fryer.

My husband hosts a party each year for the big game. His game day parties always crack me up, because he doesn’t invite anyone but our kids and me! This recipe will be the perfect snack to serve my crew.
