Butter chicken is an Indian staple and can easily be made in the slow cooker. Serve over rice or with naan to soak up the creamy sauce.
Chicken Makhani is one of my favorite Indian dishes. It is a full flavored dish that complements the chicken well. It can be made as mild or spicy as you wish by adjusting the cayenne.
First time making butter chicken in the slow cooker and it turned out delicious. the chicken was so tender and I used chicken breast. Only changes is that I added fresh ginger , 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper and added the yogurt 15 minutes before serving. I made basmati rice but since my husband is not a big fan of rice , when I can home I diced up some potatoes and boiled them in 15 minutes and then added them to the chicken for about 5 minutes before serving it. I know it is not traditional butter chicken but it was so delicious. So it was carb overload since I also had it with the basmati rice and let,s not forget the nann bread that soaks up the sauce. Next time I am making my own mann bread. There is a recipe on this site that has great reviews.
Absolutely AMAZING!!! Finally a delicious Indian dish that is spicy but not hot. I had given up on butter chicken because I prepared it using a sauce that came out of a jar and quite frankly, we found it to be rather flavorless. This recipe was well worth the trip across town to purchase the spices I needed. While at the store I picked up some frozen naan. Not as good as the naan my daughter makes using a recipe from this website, but much better than some other naan I once purchased that wasn't frozen.
