This quick and easy Indian Butter Chicken recipe is made in the convenience of a Crock Pot (although, stove top works too). Tender chicken in a rich and creamy tomato sauce with fragrant spices makes for a satisfying meal that everyone will love! Paleo and Whole30 approved!
School is back in session and for my family this means after school activities that always seem to be scheduled around dinner time. Instead of hitting the drive through when the kids are starving, put these simple ingredients into a crock-pot and let it cook for you!
The flavor combination is mild and creamy making it kid-friendly. Sneak in some veggies by serving over cauliflower rice, a cruciferous vegetable that provides numerous benefits from anti-oxidants, rich vitamins and many minerals. If you prefer, mix cauliflower rice with some white jasmine for another clever way to add those veggies!
If you like spice, add more garam marsala and smoked paprika. You could also add in red curry. And here’s a tip when using fresh ginger, freeze 2 inch pieces making it easy to grate when ready to add to recipes.
