Recipe Ingredients:

Butter Chicken Marinade:


  • Mix your butter chicken marinade and put to one side.
  • Place into the Instant Pot 25 medium tomatoes, 2.5 large onions, 2.5tbsp tomato puree, 3 cans of tinned tomatoes and your 7.5 chicken breasts.
  • Give it a good coating of salt and add in ½ of your marinade ingredients.
  • Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes and then use quick pressure release.
  • Remove the chicken, add the other ½ of the marinade, 2 cans of tinned tomatoes and blend the remaining ingredients of the Instant Pot.
  • Dice the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  • Stir in the 7.5tbsp Greek Yoghurt and add the chicken back in.
  • Add to your freezer containers.
  • From the freezer place the butter chicken container into the Instant Pot over the steamer shelf. Make sure there is a cup of water beneath. Cook for 15 minutes on manual.


Because the Instant Pot strips flavour it is best to add ½ the seasoning before cooking and half after (like we have done above).
