Slow Cooker Butter Chicken


  • 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • One 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • One 1½-inch piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • ½ serrano chile—stemmed, seeded and minced
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish
  • Steamed rice, for serving


Add all of the ingredients, except the cilantro and rice, to the bowl of a slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on high until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has slightly thickened, 2 hours. Garnish with cilantro leaves, then serve over rice.
