we loooove Indian food over here. Seriously could eat it every day! so I am always looking to make my own. This recipe was super easy and tasted delicious!
Crockpot Indian Butter Chicken
For 4-5 servings
-4-6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into pieces (I used 1lb)
-1/2 onion, diced
-4-5 cloves garlic, minced
-2 tbsp butter
-2 tbsp olive oil
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1 tbsp curry powder
-1 tbsp garam masala
-2 tbsp Indian curry paste (I used hot curry paste so I halved the amount of cayenne I used, we LOVE spicy food and this was the perfect amount)
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp cayenne pepper (*leave this out if you don’t like spicy). (I used 1/2 tsp)
-1 can coconut milk
-1 cup plain greek yogurt (or regular)
-1 6 oz can tomato paste
-Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion, cook for 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, cook for 30 seconds. Add chicken, cook until it starts to get some color and the onion is translucent, about 3-4 more minutes.
-Pour into crockpot. Add remainder of ingredients. Stir gently. Cook for 7-8 hours on low. Serve by itself, or over basmati rice with a side of whole what naan.
