Slow cooker butter chicken recipe

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 6 hours

The internet is abuzz with images of Butter Chicken! Every time I open Pinterest….there it is. Taunting me. So in an effort to curb my craving once and for all – I made it over the weekend.

I did some digging and let me tell you, there are a plethora of recipes on the interwebs for this dish.  Some have a spice list a mile long, others not so much.  Some have butter (hence the name) some none at all.  So which one is the right one?  Only your Indian Grandmother will know for sure.  I took inspiration from my sweet friend Chung-Ah at www.damndelicious.net and decided to go the slow-cooker route.  I eliminated the slough of spices by using our Tandoori Glory Spice Rub and a handful of other ingredients.  The kids gobbled it up, the husband and dad didn’t speak much during dinner (a sure sign it was a winner) and seconds were had by all.
