Chicken Tikka Masala Pressure Cooker Recipe

Chicken Masala is fantastic with bastami rice and naan bread. Actually, most of the time when I make this at home I completely skip the rice and just eat it with naan bread…I might be slightly addicted to naan 😉

When I make this for the kids they prefer just a simple white rice. If you would like to make your rice in the Instant Pot we have two simple tutorials you can follow:

This chicken masala (or butter chicken in some circles) is extremely easy to make and a family-friendly meal. If your kids have not yet tried Indian food, chicken masala is a great dish to introduce to them.

While chicken masala is “spicy” it is not spicy in the sense of hot. Instead, it is filled with savory rich creamy flavors that most kids will love.

When we first introduced butter chicken to my kids they were a bit hesitant. Now chicken tikka masala is frequently requested here. And cooking chicken masala in the pressure cooker couldn’t be easier!

Alrighty y’all, let’s get cooking!
