Recipe: Slow cooker butter chicken

This is the perfect recipe for those days when you don't feel like cooking and wish dinner was already done. I found this slow cooker butter chicken recipe on a fellow home-chef foodie blog called Damn Delicious and immediately gave it a go. This recipe is one where you make the sauce from scratch so there are no yucky packety flavours. Make your usual rice to serve with it and you've got a meal of comforting fresh Indian cuisine the whole family will enjoy.
