Slow Cooker Chicken Makhani

I love butter chicken, I've never made it in the crockpot before, but it was so easy and turned out so good and definitely spicy! I got the recipe from A year of slow cooking

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 onion, sliced
6 garlic cloves, chopped
4 T butter
15 cardamom pods
2 tsp curry
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 can coconut milk
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
2 T lemon juice
1 cup plain yogurt

Put chicken in crockpot, and add onion, garlic, and all of the dry spices (put the cardamom pods in cheesecloth). Add in the butter and tomato paste. Add lemon juice and coconut milk. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4. The chicken should shred easily with 2 forks when fully cooked.

Stir in plain yogurt 15 minutes before serving. Discard cardamom pods.
