Ingredients

Butter Chicken

  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk (full or low-fat)
  • 3/4 cups plain greek yogurt
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1/2 medium-large sweet yellow onion (finely diced)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced or crushed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 2 tablespoons garam masala spice blend
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (use to your spice preference)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into bite-size chunks)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ground black pepper

For serving

  • Cooked white rice (or brown rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa)
  • Naan
  • fresh cilantro
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (for an extra kick!)

Instructions

  1. In the slow cooker insert, stir together all Butter Chicken ingredients except for the chicken, butter, and black pepper. Add the chicken pieces to the sauce and stir to coat. Top with the butter. Cover and cook on Low for 6-8 hours or on High for 3-4 hours. Once done cooking, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  2. Serve over cooked rice, top with some fresh cilantro and red pepper flakes if you want an extra kick. Don’t forget the naan on the side 🙂
