Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in the Instant Pot in the order listed EXCEPT for the butter, cream, and garam masala.
  2. Mix the sauce well to incorporate the spices, and then lay the chicken pieces on the top of the sauce.
  3. Close the lid and make sure your toggle is set to sealing. Set manual/high pressure for 10 minutes. When cooking is finished, let natural pressure release take place for 10 minutes, and then carefully release the rest of the pressure.
  4. Take the chicken out of the pot and set aside.
  5. Blend together all of the ingredients left in the pot with an immersion blender.
  6. Add the butter, cut into smaller pieces, and the cream and the garam masala and stir in well. If your family like cilantro, add at this step, and if not, chop some cilantro and serve on the side for those who like it…it really adds brightness and flavor to this dish!
  7. Add the chicken back into the pot. You can break it into smaller pieces but don’t actually shred it.
  8. Serve over rice, cauliflower rice, noodles, or just eat plain!
