My Thoughts on this Recipe

This Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken recipe from Damn Delicious is so quick to assemble in the slow cooker, and it has great flavor. This is perfect for that day when you will be running around and need dinner to be ready when you get home. All you will need to do is make some rice, and you are good-to-go.


The main ingredients are: chicken stock, tomato paste, yellow curry powder, garam masala, turmeric, chicken thighs, onion, garlic, ginger, heavy cream, lime juice and brown sugar. View the full recipe here.


This recipe is simple and straight-forward. Because there are only two of us, I only used one pound of chicken thighs, and I left the sauce as written, and it worked well for us. I loved that it only took about five minutes to prep everything and get it into the slow cooker. It also smelled fantastic while it was cooking, and we thought it was wonderful to eat. The lime at the end adds a nice punch of flavor, so don’t skip it.

Future Ideas/Variations
