Weeknight Toddler Win: Butter Chicken

When I was doing Whole30 I tried to look for dinner recipes that everyone would eat so that I am not making 3 different meals. In a Pinterest binge I came across Butter Chicken. Eww… sounds gross. Intrigued, I clicked the link. Turns out there’s not even any butter in this chicken recipe! It’s a crock pot meal that combines spices like turmeric, coriander and garam marsala with tomatoes and the key ingredient: full fat coconut milk. I took a shot the first I made this, not sure of how spicy it would be. Turns out, it’s not spicy at all. The best part was everyone loved it!

Savanna loves this stuff. Mix some veggies in or serve it over butternut squash, sweet potato, or chick pea pasta and Wa La! You just crushed your Monday dinner with minimal after work prep.

The recipe I like best is actually for an instant pot, but I modify it a bit and throw it in the crock. There are a few out there with simpler ingredients so get pinterest-ing and find your family’s favorite version.

Here’s the recipe I used


Warning: Messy meal warning. Totally acceptable to strip down before eating. Not you, your kid!
