Crockpot Chicken Tikka

I love Indian food!  When I was in college they had the best Indian restaurant in town & I loved to try the different things.  I love how indian food has it’s own flavors & unique blends of spices.  This dish is very easy, & very delicious.  The perfect ratio of chicken to sauce & I love the hint of cinnamon amongst the smokey cumin & spicy cayenne.  This could be for dinner at your house tonight!
