Butter chicken is one of my favorite Indian dishes. I was pleasantly surprised how delicious and authentic of butter chicken could be produced in a slow cooker. And with almost no effort!
6 boneless chicken thighs or 4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
15 green cardamom pods
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 tablespoon curry paste
1/2 teaspoon crushed chili flakes
2 teaspoons tandoori masala
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 can coconut milk
1 5-1/2 oz can tomato paste
Add the spices, coconut milk and tomato to the slow cooker. Mix gently to combine. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.
Remove cardamon pods. Serve with rice, naan or Indian Spiced Peas.
