Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Tikka Masala is the ultimate Indian comfort food. Normally it takes hours to marinate the chicken, grill it, then cook it in a creamy tomato sauce. But with the help of the Instant Pot and a cooked rotisserie chicken, this delicious meal can be prepared in minutes. For the tomato soup base, check out this recipe I created because it is equally as delicious.
