Crockpot Butter Chicken

crockpotbutterchickenI love butter chicken, so I’ve made it a bit healthier – and put it in the crockpot, so it’s really easy to make and fills the house with a delightful aroma. This to me is one of the best comfort foods.

In a skillet over medium low heat cook the onions and garlic in the olive oil with the curry powder until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes, then place into the crockpot.

Next add the tomato paste and coconut milk into the crockpot along with the rest of the spices and stir until lightly mixed. Add the chicken, and stir in well. Allow to cook on low heat for 4.5-5 hours. Serve along with rice or other grain of choice. Enjoy!
