This Easy Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala recipe makes a restaurant-quality Indian curry that has succulent pieces of boneless chicken in a flavorful creamy sauce. Ginger, garlic and Indian spices combine to give the curry a heavenly aroma and taste! Now there's no reason to go for takeout; cooking this recipe at home in the Instant Pot allows you to get the dish on the table in less than 30 minutes, with fresh and healthy ingredients!
Prep time does not include steps that are already accounted for in the ingredient list, e.g. minced garlic, cut up chicken, etc.
* American tomato sauce (called tomato passata in the UK), not tomato ketchup
** Feel free to add more cream to make the dish richer and creamier!
I make the recipe as written with no sealing problems. If you regularly encounter the ‘burn’ message, you can add the tomato sauce and tomato paste together on top of the other ingredients, without stirring. If you still have issues, add some more liquid, e.g. a few tablespoons of chicken broth, with the yogurt. [Read more: Instant Pot Burn Message]
