Butter chicken is a comforting and nourishing meal that has become a family favorite these last few months. The chicken is marinated in yogurt, vindaloo spice blend, and lemon juice and then combined with caramelized onions, broth, tomatoes and cream to create a luxurious meal.
With a recipe like this, I’m pretty sure many of you will ask about adaptations, so let’s dive in:
If you need to avoid dairy, you can make this with a dairy-free yogurt, coconut oil and coconut milk (see specific measurements below).
If you need to avoid tomatoes, you can use 1 cup of this Nomato sauce. If you’re wondering why I use nightshades in my recipes and if you need to avoid them, read this article.
Cilantro and chopped cashews for serving (optional)
Stir the yogurt, vindaloo spice blend, and lemon juice together in a medium bowl. Stir in the chicken and make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated with the marinade. Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for about 8-10 hours, or you can leave the mixture on the counter for 1 hour to marinate if you’re short on time.
Melt the butter over low heat in a large sauté pan. Add the onions and cook on low heat for about 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft and caramelized. Stir in the chicken mixture (yogurt, spices and all) and increase the heat to medium. Stir in the tomatoes, stock and salt. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Stir in the cream. Serve over riced cauliflower, or soaked brown rice, and top with chopped cilantro and cashews.
