low carb : the BEST keto butter chicken

Guys, this is the BEST butter chicken recipe, and I have tried almost every one out there. If you want to impress, go with this dish.

Have you heard of the Instant Pot? It's the little kitchen appliance that is taking the world by storm! It is a rice cooker/slow cooker/pressure cooker all in one and is a game changer in the meal prep arena. Not only is it an economical way to cook as you only have to heat up a 5-8 qt appliance, but it is also a healthier way to prepare food as the nutrients are cooked back into the food under pressure. Now, lets discuss the most important component: flavor. Because seasonings and flavors are not cooked out in steam but rather contained within the pressure cooker, the flavors tend to be heightened when prepared in a pressure cooker, resulting in a more flavorful meal.

For those who have yet to invest in an Instant Pot, this recipe is easily adaptable to a stove top method and still the best butter chicken you've ever tasted. I guarantee it!
