My fav butter chicken recipe. While making the sauce, taste it frequently and adjust curry powder to suit. I like a mild curry, very mild. Many others like it hotter. So taste and adjust.

BUTTER CHICKEN

250-500g chicken, cut into cubes 2T butter
1 onion, grated. 1t ginger paste
1t garlic paste. ½ c tomato puree(one of the little pottles)
¼ t chilli powder. salt to taste
¼ t Pams curry powder.
4T butter. coriander leaves, finely chopped
½ c cream. 1 c rice

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180˚C.
2. Melt first measure of butter in frying pan & cook chicken until juices are clear. Remove chicken from frying pan.
3. Melt second measure of butter in frying pan. Add the grated onion & fry until golden brown.
4. Add the ginger & garlic pastes. Fry for a minute & add tomato puree, salt, coriander and chilli powder. Fry for 2-3 minutes.
5. Turn heat to low and add cream, stirring constantly. Do not let boil. Cook for a minute and turn off heat.
6. Arrange chicken pieces in ovenproof dish. Pour the sauce over.
7. Cook in the oven @180C for 15 mins. Serve with rice.

Looks tasty! I often struggle with the best way to cook lamb. So tasty when tender but not so good when overcooked.

Ahh - excellent, a slow cooker recipe! I must start lining up a few of these - other than the beef in burgundy or curries I usually do.
Once G heads back to work, I think the slow cooker will be my best friend, given the very witchy witching hours Tommy brings on from about 4pm :D

Anyone have an apricot chicken recipe that would be good in a slow cooker?

I did a slow cooked braised beef cheek casserole in the oven this week. Cheap cuts are always best slow cooked and it was SO good!! !

4C self-raising flour
300mL cream
300mL lemonade (rinse out the cream bottle with it)

mix with a knife, roll into rectangle, about 1cm thick

microwave about 4t cinnamon, about 1.5cm off a pound of butter, 8T brownsugar, and then spread evenly on scone base, leaving a strip clean on one long side

Roll, from the other (long side). Cut into ~1 inch blobs. Bake at 200C until delicious-looking.

Eat hot, vigorously!


Dang. That sounds tasty. I might have to make it at work for morning tea this week!

This. Was. Awesome. Served with kumara mash from here. http://allrecipes.com.au/recipe/7058/ma ... atoes.aspx
Meant to steam sparrowgrass to serve with, but ran out of time. :blush:

A++ would trade again.

Technically, not a slow cooker recipe. :sly:

But if you put it in the slowcooker... I think it is!

I have a slow cooker bible book that is taking up space on a bookshelf somewhere. I'll have a browse through that at some stage and scan in some pages for you :)
