Pressure Cooker / Instant Pot Butter Chicken

Pressure Cooker / Instant Pot Butter Chicken is a classic Indian restaurant favorite that is easy to make at home. You’ll love the combination of tender chicken thighs and a creamy, buttery tomato sauce. 

There’s something special about Indian butter chicken—flavorful chicken thighs marinated in yogurt and spices and smothered in a delicious tomato sauce.

Traditionally, butter chicken is made with chicken cooked in a tandoor oven and marinated in a creamy curry to make it tender. However, when you make it in your electric pressure cooker, you can have tender butter chicken on your table in just 30 minutes.
