Non Dairy “Butter” Chicken

Oh this no dairy butter chicken is absolutely creamy and delicious!  You don’t even taste the coconut milk in the saucy gravy which makes it taste like such an amazing gluttonous treat to eat!  This dish is so easy to make and is even better as leftovers.  When eating it the next day, the flavor is much more robust and tasty!

Another wonderful thing about this dish is that it can be made in the InstantPot or the Slow Cooker.  It tastes great either way!
