Slow Cooker Butter Chicken


Mealthy Tip

Use oil instead of butter for a dairy-free dish. While this recipe works with either chicken breasts or thighs, chicken breasts tend to get a bit dry if cooked for too long in the slow cooker while thighs stay very moist even with a longer cook time. This recipes makes a good amount, but freezes well. Freeze individual portions in containers; thaw and heat in microwave oven when you need dinner in a hurry.

Butter chicken is so good and this recipe did not disappoint. The sauce was rich and creamy, just how I like it, with a lot of really good flavor. This is for sure a family favorite.

I've always made my butter chicken with yogurt, but this version is just as good. The sauce is creamy, mildly spicy, and tastes amazing. I used thighs for this dish and it was very tender and juicy. This is an awesome recipe!

This is a classic butter chicken recipe that is tender and very delicious. This recipe makes a really large batch, so next time I will meal prep for my wife and me. I love putting it in the slow cooker, it makes the cleanup easy and and simple.

I made this recipe two days ago. It was the first recipe that I chose to make with my new Mealthy Multipot. It was super delicious. I still have some left in my fridge and I can't wait to get home for left overs.
