• 400-500 g boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into 2-3cm pieces
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 medium green or red capsicum, sliced
  • 375g pouch Wattie’s Curry Creations Tikka Masala Curry Sauce
  • 2-4 Tbsp full fat unsweetened yoghurt or cream (optional)
  • chopped coriander leaves (optional)

1. Heat a dash of ghee or oil in a heavy based saucepan and quickly sear chicken with the onion until lightly golden brown.

2. Reduce heat. Add capsicum. Pour over Wattie’s Curry Creations Tikka Masala Curry Sauce. Cover. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is cooked.

3. Remove from heat and allow to stand for 2-3 minutes before adding the yoghurt or cream, if using (to avoid the sauce curdling).

4. Serve over steamed basmati rice. Garnish with a little fresh coriander leaves and serve with poppadoms or naan bread.

Top Tips

* Replace chicken with diced lamb, seafood or vegetables. Note cooking time will vary depending on what is used.

* This recipe can also be cooked in the slow cooker. Use chicken thigh cutlets or diced stewing lamb. Cook on low heat for 4-5 hours. Alternatively cook in the oven in an oven-proof dish for 1-2 hours at 160°C depending upon cut of meat.

Make this often. So tender and poplar with all the family - and friends. The Tikka Masala sauce is bliss. So tasty - often make it just for myself and make the leftovers into a tikka masla pie or toasted sandwich for the school and work lunches!!!!!

Came out really great but had to use my Wok, no slow cooker.

I haven't made this yet, just wondering if, when using a slow cooker, do you still sear the chicken? Thanks.

Hi Marama,

The chicken will be cooked at a low temperature for 4-5 hours and it would work fine, however you're also more than welcome to sear the chicken before putting it into the slow cooker to help with the final flavour :)

Hope this helps

Wow that went down a treat with family. Some went back for seconds.
So easy to prepare. Added grated carrot and quarter cut mushrooms.
