This chicken tikka masala chili is the stuff your dreams are made of. This Whole30 chili has a rich and creamy tomato sauce, with beautiful caramelized onions, garlic, and chiles, loaded with tender ground chicken and veggies. Inspired by my beloved chicken tikka masala recipe, this chicken tikka masala chili is a must make for fall! It'll surely become your favorite Whole30 chili, too.
Return pot to stove and heat remaining 4 tablespoons ghee. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add serrano chiles, garlic, ginger, and reduce heat to medium or medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture turns a nice toffee color, about 20 minutes, adding a few drops of water here and there if mixture is drying out and sticking to the pot. This step is extremely important, so don’t skip it! It should look like the photo before you move on to the next step.
Taste and add more salt to taste. Serve over basmati or cauliflower rice and naan, if desired, and garnish with plenty of fresh chopped cilantro leaves.
