Butter Chicken is one of those delicious, hearty dishes with an Indian flair that warm my heart. For years I refused to make it, as I only found unhealthy options packed with butter and cream... and then I found and tweaked a recipe that includes no butter, no cream, but still makes a creamy, tasty sauce that is a delight, especially as we head into those colder nights. This is perfect to pop into the slow cooker and make while you're at work, and then make it an early night dinner so you can enjoy time with the family or binging on your favorite show!

This recipe came courtesy of the great chef Asha Gomes, who used to own a phenomenal restaurant named Cardamom Hill here in Atlanta and now hosts these incredible soirees in one of her spaces with small, intimate dinners. Anyhow... once I saw this I knew I need to make it and I LOVED it - it's become a repeat recipe over time. See below - I've modified the recipe to be a light sauté instead of a deep fry, and modified the garnishes and serving method.
