Butter Chicken Cooked in Slow Cooker: Image

Chicken breast cut into cubes and cooked in a sauce using the slow cooker.  The sauce is rich containing coconut cream which adds a lovely texture.  The rich, creamy spiced sauce just makes the whole dish melt in your mouth.  The thing about this way of cooking is basically all the ingredients are added to the chicken in the slow cooker.  Switch it on and forget about it for a few hours obviously I suggest you do go and stir it just to make sure everything is being cooked evenly
