Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

This dinner packs a ton of flavor with minimal work needed. This mild and creamy dish provides a great opportunity to add a whole grain (brown rice or barley are my recommendations) and some oven-roasted vegetables. You can also plan ahead by throwing all the ingredients in a large Ziploc bag to freeze for up to 3 months, and thaw in the refrigerator overnight when you are ready to cook.
