”It’s creamy, perfectly spiced and oh-so-delicious! This Instant Pot Butter Chicken is a great weeknight dinner at the end of a busy day. This gluten and optionally dairy-free dinner is a one pot meal, thanks to the rice that cooks alongside the chicken. It’s guaranteed to be a new family favorite.”
