Butter Chicken is the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Indian cuisine. It's creamy delicious sauce is mildly spiced with notes of cardamom and cinnamon. Traditionally, tandoori chicken marinated in yogurt and spices, is added to the gravy, simmered on low to allow the chicken morsels to absorb the creamy sauce. In restaurants, sauces are made with butter, cream, tomatoes and spices, and contain added sugar to give sweetness to the gravy.

This simple to cook Indian butter chicken recipe is paleo, keto & whole30 approved. Made with our homemade-style vegan Butter Chicken Sauce, loaded with flavor instead of sugar, additives and dairy.
