    I made your crock pot butter chicken recipe just yesterday – amazing! It was the best (and easiest) butter chicken recipe I’ve ever made at home.

    This is my favourite Indian dish, by far. Sadly, we don’t have butter chicken buffets around here, which may not actually be a bad thing. This looks great!

    You know, I’ve been making your Better Butter Chicken recipe for a few years now, only not in the slow cooker (and with shrimp instead of chicken because we don’t eat chicken) and it’s a huge hit around here.

    I always embarrass myself over those dumplings in curry sauce. Cannot eat enough.

    Jan – oh yes you do! There are two places down on King Street just a few doors from each other – I can’t recall the names, but I go for lunch every time I’m in Toronto!

    LOVE Indian food! By far my favorite! Ive never even attempted to cook indian before. (made naan once from a bannok recipe which turned out amazingly!) it tends to be a little too involved for me. Thank you for posting this Ju! Easy and comfy and delicious! It’s what’s for dinner tonight for sure!

    Thanks for this – can’t wait to try it this weekend. Love that it is full of healthy ingredients and only 1/2 cup of cream. I also love Indian food. Have never tired naan but would like to – do you have a WW recipe?

    I love butter chicken and the spinach with little cubes of cheese in it – what’s that called? With garlic naan it’s a meal I adore. I’ve made your slow cooker batter chicken on top of the stove (because I don’t have a slow cooker) and it turned out well. Now I’ll make this one to try it. Thanks for your recipes. I’d love a recipe for garlic naan and for the spinach dish, too :)

    Easy to make and Sunterra makes my favourite to bring home and reheat while the rice cooks.

    Ooooh, bad thing to read when I’m at work for two more hours and it’s lunchtime and I have nothing to eat! That looks delicious. The recipe sounds similar to Chicken Tikka Masala… is there a fundamental difference between the two?

    By the way, @Laurie from Burnaby, the spinach dish is Saag Paneer or Palak Paneer. It is one of my favorite foods on earth.

    Made this for dinner tonight with some wild and brown rice. It was a big hit with everyone though they all wanted to salt it a little more. And the aroma of this while it cooks simply brings them salivating to your kitchen.

    Thanks for this great recipe.

    I adore butter chicken! I’ve never made it at home though, this recipe looks pretty straight forward and tasty

    Hi Julie, love your website. One question, I am lactose intolerant, what can I use to substitute cream/whipping cream? Would plain yogourt work?

      Full fat plain yogurt would work, if you can tolerate it! Just keep the heat low so that it doesn’t separate.

    Hi Julie

    Can you substitute coconut milk for the cream?

    It is on my list of things to make on our stormy day here!

    I misread “Think of the glee!” as “Think of the ghee!” Either way, I’m super excited to make this. Your recipes have become at least a weekly tradition at my house!

    I made this recipe yesterday, and although it was good, it tasted to me more like a basic tomatoe curry dish, rather than butter chicken. I understand the premise here is a lighter version of the standard restaurant fare, but I was disappointed. I used 1/2 and 1/2, so maybe using whipping cream would have provided more creamy taste and texture, but I doubt it. I guess to make an amazing dish of butter chicken (a la Tandoori Hut), you need to go full throttle on the fat.

    Hi Julie,

    Just want to tell you how much I love your site! I check it regularly and happily remember all the “treats” you used to bring over to Rachael and Scottie’s house. I still love to cook! ( maple roasted parsnips with cranberries and lemon/herb baked pork chops for dinner last night — yum!!! )
    Keep it up! Love, Sue

    Other people, who choose yoga that is more energetic or demanding, get more energy from deep colors like crimson or emerald green. This will help
    you a lot in purchasing the best and the most affordable.

    -The test was done incorrectly for example perhaps
    the test was not saturated entirely in urine. HCG will
    definitely not cause weight loss single-handedly.

    The treatment comes in both drops and injections, which
    are given by a doctor.

    Techniques and trends like branding, managed care contracts, practice ownership,
    and sales have not been as affective (Beckman).
    Through a process of analyzing the inbound links into your site, you can see if they look legitimate or not, and if they are not then you can tell Google not to count them.
    This is where businesses can inspire and move people.
