Butter Chicken

Found this recipe here: http://www.becomingness.com.au/blog/slow-cooker-butter-chicken There is no butter in this butter chicken. No idea if that’s typical or not, as I was a picky picky person who never branched out to try new foods for the longest time…and by then our household was largely special-diet anyway. So.. this appears to be GFCF, and Feingold stage 2 friendly (tomatoes and spices.. no real way to make it stage 1.)
