This Tandoori Chicken recipe offers some new flavors that will brighten up your tastebuds and fill your belly nutrient rich ingredients!
- 2 pounds boneless chicken thighs (skin or no skin, its up to you! They will be tender regardless)
- 1.5 cup lite coconut milk (or full-fat, it will just be mean more fat…which if you’re Keto is good news!)
- 1 cup plain 2% fat greek yogurt
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- 1-2 tablespoon fresh minced ginger (peeled)
- 2 tablespoon ground cumin
- 2 tablespoon smoked paprika
- 2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 2-3 teaspoons salt
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground cayenne
- 2 TBSP cilantro to top (you won’t want to skip this!)
- 6 cups cooked Cauliflower Rice (just follow instruction on the bag)
- Add all ingredients to the pressure cooker pot except for the chicken thighs. Stir until yogurt is fully incorporated. *(If you have time, push ‘sauté’ on the instapot and roast the spices a bit before you add the coconut milk and yogurt)
- Add chicken thighs to the pot, arranging them evenly on top of the yogurt-coconut mixture. (If they take a dive under the sauce that’s okay too;-)
- Secure and seal the lid and the vent. (this is SUPER important!)
- Cook at high pressure for 20 minutes, followed by a pressure release.
- Uncover and transfer only the chicken to a plate.
- Use 2 forks to shred the chicken and then return it to the pot. Stir together, OR do what I did…just spoon the whole chicken into a bowl over your cooked cauliflower rice!
- *optional steps: Turn on the saute mode to medium heat. Boil until it thickens from a soup-like to a sauce-like consistency, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking along the bottom of the pot.
- Turn off the sauté mode, and serve while hot. Sprinkle some chopped cilantro on top!
