Best recipe I’ve made with my slow cooker, hands down.

Very good, though could use more spices for more complexity. Love the crock pot method and will research more traditional spices for a better, more genuine, flavor next time. Definitely a repeat recipe.

This was very good and Hubby liked it too even though he doesn't eat chicken thighs. Doubled the spices and added three minced garlic cloves as we like a lot of flavor. Also added two chopped red peppers since that is how it comes from our favorite Indian restaurant in Toronto. Only had one 14 oz. can of chopped diced tomatoes so added two fresh ones to the mix. Skipped the cream as did not have on hand. Next time will add some cayenne to give it some heat along with some coconut milk. This is a keeper.

Very tasty. A little watery, but may have been how watery my diced tomato was. Still keeping at 5 stars for how easy it was to get such a tasty dish. My kids ate the sauce the next day as a dip with pita bread. Yum.

This is so easy and delicious. The family loves it. I double the garlic and Garam masala. Sometimes I add smoky paprika. To lighten it up I use Greek yogurt.

It was wonderful!! I also had time to do the extra's-marinate the chicken and sauted the onions, etc.

Delicious. I think I'll use less cream next time but my family all had clean plates at the end of dinner time. really nice recipe and easy to make too.

I used whole chicken thighs and cooked on 2 (out of a max 5 setting) in the crockpot, with the veg sauteed as she recommends, for about 12 hours. It was fantastic! We didn't have diced tomatoes, so I used the remainder of the can of tomato paste. I also daubed sour cream on the chicken as an overnight marinade, and did not discard before adding the veg/tomato paste/spices. I added about 4 Tblsp of coconut cream before serving. Overall this was saucy but not thin, and excellent over basmati rice. Will definitely be making it again!
