The BEST part about this recipe is that you may already have these ingredients in your kitchen. If not, they are so simple to find in any grocery store, you won’t need to go searching high and low to find them!

There are two ingredients in this recipe that you might now have sitting around. (If you do, that’s awesome.) They are garam masala and Tumeric. I found them both in the spice section at my grocery store.

We are still coating and marinating our chicken with an aromatic spiced Tikka yogurt, using chicken breasts instead of thighs for a delicious outcome. I would suggest marinating even longer than an hour if you have the time.

If you use thighs, you can cut down your marinading time by 1/2 because it will soak in all the flavors faster. But the texture will be a little different. The choice is up to you!

If you are looking for an simple recipe that looks love you cooked all day, this Tikka Masala is the one! Especially when you make it in your Instant Pot! You really can’t go wrong!
