Butter chicken masala is a popular Indian dish of grilled chicken simmered in a smooth, silky, and creamy onion tomato and cashew gravy. This finger-licking good curried dish is popular on restaurant menus. Also known as Butter Chicken Murgh Makhani.



Tikka Masala Chicken


1 lb chicken thighs, boneless, skinless



Garam Masala

Thai curry powder


Cardamom, crushed

1 can Coconut milk

Basmati Rice


Naan Bread


  1. Place the chicken, coconut milk, and salt in slow cooker, low heat for 4-5 hours.
  2. In a heated frying pan, add oil and then onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, garam masala, turmeric, and cook down. Then add tomato paste and water until you have a nice saucy texture.  Let this simmer for 3-4 minutes and then add to slow cooker. 
  3. Taste after a few hours and measure temperature of the chicken, looking for 165 or so. I like to add salt, chili powder, yogurt, or cilantro throughout the tasting process.
