Time to add a little flavor to your weeknight dinner routine, Slow Cooker Butter Chicken style! The savory, creamy sauce is richly spiced (but spicy), the chicken is plump and juicy, and the veggies are sneakily hidden.
This tasty butter chicken is the crockpot version of my Instant Pot Butter Chicken, which is one of the most popular, highest-rated recipes on my website. It has an authentic Indian flavor, but you can find all of the ingredients at an average grocery store, and you’ll need no more than 15 minutes to prep it.
If you’ve never had authentic Indian butter chicken (or Indian food in general!), this Slow Cooker Butter Chicken is recipe to try. After a few bites, you’ll have the same reaction I did during the month I spent traveling through India: L-O-V-E.
The depth of flavor found in authentic Indian cooking is striking. Every bite reveals nuances, and the more of it you eat, the more you start to crave it.
I could barely get this Slow Cooker Butter Chicken transferred to a container, because I kept sneaking bites of it out of the slow cooker. By the time I’d used a piece of naan bread to wipe the corners of my crockpot clean, dish soap was nearly unnecessary.
