Slow Cooker Butter Chicken
Butter chicken is my 4 year old's absolute favourite. Actually I find a lot of folks here in New Zealand who LOVE butter chicken. It's amazing walking to a food court at the mall or an Indian restaurant and most folks order butter chicken. It's a great curry but the problem I have with them is that its a) loaded with sugar, making it super sweet b) it has food coloring.

I don't make it as often as she would like at home, but if I have a super crazy week, I grab a packet of BC sauce and a tray of chicken from the supermarket and quickly put it together for her.
This past weekend I decided to make it in a slow cooker and see how it will turn out. The recipe as you will see below has no sugar or food coloring. I have included honey as optional just in case there is a spice kick from the chili powder. The smell in the kitchen as the BC cooked away in the slow cooker was heavenly. Of course the true judge was my four year old ... Got to be honest, I was a bit nervous LOL ... I placed the curry with some rice in front of her, and her eyes got all big with excitement. She grabbed a spoon full of rice and curry and ate it while I stood there waiting for the result ... haha ... and out came the words Ka Pai mama ... Ka Pai is māori (NZ native language) and it means Good job!
I am pretty sure this winter season here i...
