Crock-potting Indian Style

I love my crock-pot dearly. I also love my friends, helping to improve recipes and Indian Food. I recently had the opportunity combine all of my loves into creating this easy throw together, knock-out, flavorful, Crock-Pot Indian Butter Chicken. This recipe comes together in minutes and will rival that of any restaurant.

Let me go back to the beginning, Mr. Teacher and I had our good friends over for dinner and we were discussing food. Our friends had been excited to try a crock-pot butter chicken recipe, but they were very disappointed in how it turned out. They said it was missing something and couldn’t figure out what it was. Well I took it as a challenge. They sent me a copy of the recipe and I went to work trying to make it better.

A few days later, I thought I had it. I made a big batch of Butter Chicken and it was FABULOUS!!!! I brought some left-overs to work the next day for Heather to try. She agreed that it was delicious. Now I get to share this easy recipe with you!

My recipe features fresh and flavorful spices from Penzeys. They are wonderful and I think really make the difference in this dish. I put the links to several of the spices I used below if you would also like to try them and I strongly encourage you to do so! I also lightened the original recipe up by removing over half of the butter, using low-fat coconut milk, and fat-free Greek yogurt. Trust me you will not know that the fat is missing!

If you have a recipe that you think could be improved, email me or comment below. I love a good challenge and I would be glad to help you out as well.
