I love Indian cuisine and this was a creation to make it delicious but with a Crock Pot twist. You can spice it up with jalapeños or cayenne depending on your preference. Flavor is packed in this hearty dish. Please enjoy! :)

Christina's version of butter chicken in the Crock Pot is so delicious. It's easy to prepare and the chicken thighs are super moist. All the spices and seasonings are perfectly balanced with lots of heat throughout the dish. If you like Indian cuisine, we highly recommend giving this butter chicken recipe a try.
