Butter Chicken for the Faint-Hearted

This recipe is very mild and will keep tender tongues cooler and the creaminess of the butter chicken, when paired with jasmine rice, is unbeatable.

Use your slow cooker and it becomes an easy dinner to have when you come home from work. Leftovers are great too!


  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tbsp. yellow or red curry paste (yellow is the milder)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 8 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs

Mel the butter and put in the slow cooker. Mix all the ingredients except the chicken. Add the chicken to the sauce and turn so they are all covered. Place in the slow cooker and cook for about 5-6 hours on low.

Serve with jasmine rice. Voila! Dinner in no time at all. Serve with a salad with a  snappy dressing, glass of wine …….what a night!
