There is butter in Butter Chicken, but not much so don’t be alarmed.
Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken
3 tbl Butter
1 Medium Yellow Onion
1 tbl Minced Garlic
1 1/2 tsp Minced Ginger (or ground)
1 tsp Garam Masala (which is a blend of spices I didn’t have so I blended 1/4 tsp of each: black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg. Go heavy on the pepper)
1/4 tsp Cayenne (I went light on spice for my kiddos, feel free to add more)
1 tsp Salt
1 lb Chicken (I used organic chicken tenderloins via http://www.doorganicsgr.com)
1 can (14.5 oz) Fire Roasted Tomatoes
1 can (15oz) Tomato Sauce
1/3 cup Whole Milk (you can use cream if you prefer)
1 cup Peas (frozen works great)
Place butter, chopped onion, garlic, ginger, ‘garam masala’, cayenne, salt and chicken in crockpot.
Go outside with a handsome little man and play.
(If you are leaving the house and won’t be back until its time to eat just add everything into the Crock Pot except the cream and peas, add those just before serving and should only need a few minutes to cook).
When you come back from you’re play date the slower cooker should look like this:
Add tomatoes and tomato sauce. When you are ready to serve add milk and peas, and allow to cook for a few minutes.
I cooked some rice while the peas and milk simmered and served with store bought Naan.
