Butter Chicken with Basmati Rice and Naan Bread

Easy Instant Pot Butter Chicken

Written by COA Nutrition Team On November 10, 2023

Shredded chicken thighs made incredibly tender in a rich tomato sauce with hints of Indian spices. This Instant Pot Butter Chicken is an easy family dinner that everyone at the table (babies on up) can enjoy.


  • 14.5 ounce can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes (without chili peppers)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger (from about 1 1/4-inch piece)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced; or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1 teaspoonful masala
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (optional)
  • 1-pound boneless skinless chicken thighs (trimmed)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups fully cooked rice
  • Fresh lime juice, chopped fresh cilantro, and/or naan bread, optional


  1. Stir together the tomatoes, ginger, garlic, garam masala, and salt (if using) in the multi-cooker.
  2. Nestle the chicken into the tomato mixture. Lock the lid and set to cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.
  3. When cooking is complete, press “cancel” and let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then carefully quick-release any remaining pressure. (There may not be any.)
  4. Chop the chicken in the pot with a pair of kitchen scissors, or shred with two forks.
  5. Stir in the butter and cream.
  6. Serve over rice with plain yogurt, chopped or thinly sliced cucumbers, lime juice, cilantro, and/or naan bread as desired.

Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Yes, you should get an air fryer!

There are a lot of questions popping out when it comes to this latest kitchen craze. Is it worth buying an air fryer? Here are some reasons why we think so: • Easy to clean • Easy to use • Safe to use • Healthier meals • Doesn’t take up much space • Faster Than Oven Cooking An air fryer is an incredibly easy way to cook just about anything. You place the food in a fryer-style basket and hot air rapidly circulates all around the food, making the food crisp – much like deep-frying, but without the oil. You can cook anything you’d make in the oven. So, yes, DO IT!
