Indian Butter


Indian Butter Chicken

Why is Indian take out so expensive? Last week we ordered some from a local restaurant and I was shocked at how little of the food we received! Especially for how much we paid for it.

It’s crazy how much you pay for convenience! This is one reason why I love crockpot chicken. It may seem boring, but it is very convenient to have on hand when you want nothing to do with making dinner.

So with that said, of course, I made my own version 🙂

I made mine with crockpot chicken, but you can easily cook 1lb of chopped chicken with some salt, pepper, and oil. Remove from the pan once cooked, then you are ready to start the recipe listed below.

It turned out delicious! I made some naan bread, and it paired perfectly.

Prep Time: 5-8 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

1/2 onion- diced

2 tbsp butter

2 tbsp garlic or 3 cloves

How to Cook Indian Butter Chicken Recipe:
