  1. Into the bowl of a slow cooker, add canned tomatoes, garam masala, curry powder, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  2. In a small bowl, make a cornstarch slurry by adding 3 tablespoons water to 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Stir vigorously until the cornstarch is dissolved. Stir slurry into the tomato mixture.
  3. Add chicken into the slow cooker, making sure the chicken is halfway covered in the tomato mixture.
  4. Cover with lid and cook 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
  5. When chicken is fully cooked, turn off the heat. In a small bowl, stir in remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch into the yogurt. Stir mixture into the slow cooker. Top with cilantro, if desired, and serve.

Keep it Healthy: Spice blends like garam masala and curry powder are great options to increase oomph into a dish without added fat or salt. Also, yogurt and spices can be combined for a great marinade for meats.

Tip: The chicken can be served in whole pieces, shredded, or cut into chunks when it is finished in the slow cooker.
