Dairy Free Butter Chicken ⁣

Sarah Mae (SMae) |

My husband loves Butter Chicken and was hoping for a dairy free version. I found this Instant Pot recipe by @iheartumami.ny and he loved it! ⁣

(4 large servings)⁣

✅ 4 Tbsp Coconut Oil⁣
✅ 10 Garlic Cloves, minced⁣
✅ 1 Tbsp Ginger, minced ⁣
✅ 1 med Onion, chopped ⁣
✅ 1 Tbsp Garam Masala (Recipe Here)⁣
✅ 2 tsp Paprika ⁣
✅ 2 tsp Turmeric Powder⁣
✅ 1.5 tsp Coriander Powder ⁣
✅ 6-8 skinless, boneless Chicken Thighs or Breasts⁣
✅ 28oz can of Organic Diced Tomatoes (fire roasted is best) ⁣
✅ 1/4 cup Guar Gum Free Coconut Cream ⁣
✅ Cilantro (garnish) ⁣
✅ Salt and pepper to taste ⁣


1. Melt 2 Tbsp of coconut oil in your Instant Pot*, using the sauté function. Add onion, garlic, and ginger. Season with a pinch of salt and sauté 2-3 min or until fragrant. ⁣
2. Add dry spice seasonings, stir, and turn off the sauté function. ⁣
3. Add diced tomatoes, mixing everything together and scraping the bottom of the pot to enture nothing is stick there. ⁣
4. Add the chicken and make sure the pieces are well coated. Seal the lid and valve. ⁣
5. Press Manual – 10minutes. When done, natural release until the valve drops (should take about 10 mins).⁣
6. Once done, scoop out the chicken. ⁣
7. Using gloves, pour the sauce into a blender**. Add 2 Tbsp coconut oil and coconut cream. Blend until creamy smooth. Pour back into pot. ⁣
8. Cut the chicken into small pieces and add back to the pot, combine well. ⁣
9. Garnish with cilantro and serve with cauliflower rice (see next post for pilau recipe)⁣

*If you don’t have an Instant Pot, use a large Dutch oven or heavy bottom pot. Cook over medium heat following the same steps above. Cover and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through, stirring frequently. ⁣
**You could skip this and use an immersion blender if you have one. ⁣
