This Instant Pot Tikka Masala Chicken couldn’t be any easier and is healthy, Whole30 and Paleo friendly, and ready in under 30 minutes.

It’s funny how much I love Indian food these days when it is something I had never even tried until about five years ago. Growing up in a tiny town in New England, we didn’t have a ton of options when it came to food. There were a couple pizza places, one Chinese restaurant, and a couple doughnut shops. That was pretty much it. And even when we ventured to the bigger cities nearby, there still were a lot of diverse choices. So Indian food was something I just never had.

Then while visiting a friend in Chicago a few years back, we were having a lazy Sunday and she suggested we ordered Indian food. I have been hooked ever since. Between the slow cooked curries, heavily spiced grilled dishes, amazing vegetarian options, and all the Naan – its just so good.

Lately I have been experimenting with my new love, the Instant Pot. Its an electric pressure cooker that also doubles as a slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and more. Its amazing and let’s suffice to say I am hooked. Making dishes that normally hours in under 30 minutes. Sold.

That brings me to today’s recipe – Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala. It’s the perfect healthy Indian dish to make at home and comes out perfect in the Instant Pot. It starts with a mix of onion, garlic, and ginger sauteed in coconut oil with all kinds of spices. From there tomatoes and chicken are added to create a delicious, flavor packed chicken. Then everything is finished with creamy, rich coconut milk and cilantro. Delicious.
