Butter Chicken Gut Friendly

gut health Aug 28, 2020

A super easy gut healthy dinner that you pop in the slow cooker with easy pantry ingredients, before leaving the house in the morning and you will come home to an amazing warm meal of an evening.

My family love this meal we usually have it with cooked and cooled rice.

  • 1.6 kg Diced Chicken Thighs or if your cooking in the slow cooker just throw them in whole.
  • 2 Lemons squeezed (1 if x-large)
  • 800 MLS Broth
  • 2 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Cardamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Coriander
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried Coriander leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Ginger powder
  • 2 teaspoons Garam Masala
  • 4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 400 mls Diced Tomatoes 
  • 270 mls coconut cream (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter or oil (to cook your chicken) not necessary when slow cooking
  • changing Habits seaweed salt
  • pepper



In a bowl mix all your spices, lemon juice, diced tomatoes, salt and pepper.

In a pan add your oil or butter and brown your chicken.

Pour in your tomato mixture and stir until fragrant then add in your broth.

Cook for at least 10 minutes on medium heat. 

Cook for longer if you have the time, it will add a bit more flavour and your liquid will reduce so it's a bit thicker.

When you reduce the heat add the coconut cream if you are using it remember this is optional.


Or add all your ingredients to your slow cooker and cook it on low for the day.

To serve this I add in 1-2 tablespoons of Kultured Wellness yoghurt per serve. (so in an individual meal) stir this in once the meals has cooled down a bit otherwise the heat will kill the beneficial bacteria in the yoghurt.

If you are not using yoghurt use coconut cream.

Serve with Cauliflower and Broccoli rice or cooked and cooled rice.

Carrots are a great vegetable to add to your butter chicken in the slow cooker.

These are all dairy-free and full of probiotics to heal the gut.
