Slow Cooker Recipe - Low Fat Chicken Tikka Masala

I love Chicken Tikka Marsala but I try to avoid oil and cream when I can. So this is my version of a low-fat Chicken Tikka Masala. I hope you like it!


Sunflower oil
4 tablespoons Tikka Masala Curry Paste
2 Peppers (a mix of colours is nice)
1 Onion (optional)
4 Chicken breasts or thighs chopped into chunks
1 large tin of Chopped tomatoes (400gms)
100 ml of hot chicken stock
4 tablespoon Tomato Puree
2 tablespoon Mango Chutney
3 tablespoons of Natural Yogurt

Some chopped coriander for serving


Chop the onion if using and pepper and fry in a little oil.
Add the curry paste to the pan and cook for a further couple of minutes. 
Add the chicken, tin of chopped tomatoes, hot chicken stock and tomato puree. 
Stir well.

Bring it up to a simmer.
Then add all the ingredients to the slow cooker pot.
Cook on medium for 5 hours.
Remove the lid and add the mango chutney and natural yoghurt.
Mix in the chopped coriander.
Serve with basmati rice, nan bread, poppadoms and chutney.

tasty and low in fat

  2. I love curry, and this recipe sounds right up my street. It's another reason for me to actually get around to buying a slow cooker.

    1. They are very economically too. I was told years ago they use only as much energy as a lightbulb.

  3. Curry is always best slow cooked, allows the flavours to really migrate into the meat - yum. Popping over from Recipe of the week
