Crock of Butter Chicken!
Butter Chicken AND made in a crock pot?
PREP:20 MINUTES YIELD: 4 SERVINGS COOK:5 HOURS
- 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3/4 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- salt to taste
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 1 8-ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- In a large ziploc bag the night before cooking add the yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne, black pepper, ginger, salt and chicken (leave the chicken breasts whole here).
- Zip the bag closed and work the mixture into the chicken until all incorporated. Refrigerate overnight.
- Scrape off a majority of the marinade that is on the chicken and discard it. You’ll have plenty of the second sauce to keep the food moist and provide enough sauce.
- Cut the chicken into two inch chunks.
- When you’re ready to cook the chicken, add the butter, garlic and jalapeno into the bottom of the slow cooker.
- In a small bowl add the 2 teaspoons cumin, 2 teaspoons paprika, 1 teaspoon salt, tomato sauce and heavy cream and stir to combine.
- Pour the sauce over the chicken, cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.
Stir the cornstarch into the one tablespoon of water and add to the slow cooker and stir (stir and pour quickly since you’re using more cornstarch than water it will settle quickly).
Cook an additional 20 minutes on high.
Top with cilantro before serving.
It's a nice change from regular chili, especially if tomatoes give your spouse heartburn! This chili is comforting, yet light at the same time. This is a dish I bring to family gatherings often because you can get it started ahead of time and just forget about it while letting the flavors all meld together.
One word: delicious. I always double the recipe so we can have leftovers... but we never have leftovers.

We like to make meals throughout the week, and throw in our left over meats to make Jambalaya!If you are new to jambalaya, it’s a kind of smorgasbord of goodness you will fall in love with I promise. Seems like a strange combination but when sausage, shrimp, chicken, rice, and peppers all come together in a red sauce with cajun seasonings, it’s pure magic.
I saw Paula Deen make a similar recipe on her Food Network program. I was looking for a really creamy macaroni and cheese recipe, and this is it!
