Easy Crockpot Butter Chicken

Easy Healthy Butter Chicken

This is so good. No really. So good! My sister found a recipe and made it for her 3 little ones, she told me all about how fantastic it was and how they all devoured it without question. I knew right then that I needed to make it and I am SO glad that I did. It.is.amazing!

It’s got just the right amount of Indian flavor without being too overwhelming. Now, this is a little bit of a different recipe than most you will find, because it is made to be whole30/paleo compliant. Yes, I’m still going strong and eating healthy and well! Be proud! :) If you aren’t whole30 or paleo, just add half an half instead of coconut milk…and I’m sure there is supposed to be some sort of butter in there somewhere? lol…

Easy Crockpot Butter Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 3 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • 1 13oz can coconut milk
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste
  • 1tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Lime
  • Cilantro for garnishing

Directions:

  1. Wash and put your chicken into your crock pot and turn it on.
  2. In a saucepan, saute your onion and garlic with the coconut oil until tender.
  3. Add your ginger, coriander, cumin, cardamom, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper.
  4. Add tomato paste and coconut milk. Stir and cook until all combined well.
  5. Pour sauce over chicken in crock pot.
  6. Cook for 4 hours on high heat or 8 hours on low.
  7. Most recipes and restaurants I have seen dice their chicken after cooked, but I like to shred mine. I like the consistency better:)
  8. Once on your plate (or in your bowl), squeeze lime over top and sprinkle with cilantro!
  9. Enjoy!

Indian Butter ChickenWe made ours with cauliflower rice, but you can put it over regular rice as well. PS: I thought that I would hate cauliflower rice, but it’s actually really good. Once cooked, you can’t even tell that it is cauliflower! Crazy! I’ll be sure to write a post next week on how I made the cauliflower rice and keep y’all updated!

Let me know if you try the recipe and love it! Thanks for stopping by! Come follow along on Intsagram, Twitter, and Facebook for updates and sneak peeks!

Pink & Gold Unicorn Party

My sister is one of the best party planning Moms I have ever met. She thinks of the most adorable themes, finds the cutest decorations, and is the DIY queen. I just sit over here and reap the benefits:) Free cake, awesome photos, great ideas for my future babies, and a great blog post! Haha! My niece turned 3 this year, and her birthday was the cutest pink and gold unicorn party you have ever seen. Everything was adorable and mostly DIY which means it was cheap! Look how cute:

Pink and gold unicorn party- gold glitter vases, glitter unicorn cake, gold mason jars
This cake was to die for. The cake was purchased at Kroger and she just told them to put pink rosettes on it. She then cut out a unicorn in gold glitter card stock with her Silhouette Cameo, hot glued it to a wooden stick, and voila! Perfect little unicorn cake!Pink and Gold Unicorn Cake- Unicorn birthday party Gold glitter unicorn cake with pink icing
The vases and a few mason jars were decorated in glitter as well. For the ones with the stripe around the center, she just cut out a strip of glitter card stock and hot glued it to the jars. The dipped vases were a little more complicated than that, but still pretty easy. First, you put painter’s tape around the vase to create a straight line. Then you paint a layer of modge podge on the bottom half. Sprinkle some FINE glitter on to the modge podge. Let it dry and repeat the process until you have the amount of glitter you want! Put a top layer of modge podge on the last layer of glitter and let it dry!DIY Gold glitter vases- gold birthday party decor Gold dipped mason jars- perfect for birthday parties
This tassel banner was actually made by yours truly. I will be writing a tutorial about how to make your own in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!

Fit Friday: Motivation

It has been a while! I have been so busy lately it isn’t even funny! Between vacation, working out, extra duties at work, and my shop orders I have had NO time for blogging:( That should change this next week though, I have a little bit of extra time and I plan to make some room for my blog:)
stay motivated to work out
Today’s topic is one that I have struggled with for years. Motivation. Specifically getting the motivation to work out. Since high school I have been that girl who works out in excess for a few months, then stops for a few months…then works out…then stops. You get the picture. Usually my initial motivation to work out is weight gain or an upcoming event, then once that weight is gone or the event is over with, I lose any and all motivation again. I have been doing super well with my exercise and healthy eating journey so far this year and have so far lost 20lbs (yay!), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still struggle with motivation. I’m going to talk about a few different things that have been great motivation for me this year and hopefully they can help you too!
 
1. Group Fitness: Having an instructor and classmates who will get on your case if you aren’t coming is one of the biggest motivators for me. I found this out when I joined my first bootcamp last summer. If I had someone to hold me accountable I was MUCH more likely to get my butt going. Heading to the gym by myself has always ended in failure to me, but with boot camps, I have been working out pretty consistently since last summer:) Yay me!
 
2. Babies: This will sound really dumb to all the men out there (whom I’m pretty sure don’t read my blog, lol), but having a family within the next 5 years is a huge motivator for me. I want to be as healthy as I can possibly be when that time comes, not just for me but for my future babies as well. If I am healthy and active, chances are, they will be too:) I also want to look smokin’ BEFORE I get preggo so that I will continue to be healthy during and after. It’s much easier to bounce back when you’re already in shape! Not to mention, giving birth is hard on your body and you are much more prepared for it when you are in shape!
 
3. Cute Work Out Gear: Yes, it’s sad, but I am a girl and clothes are a great motivation for me! Wearing cute clothes while I go exercise makes me happy. Giving myself a goal that ends with new work out clothes also makes me happy. Really, it’s a win win…I work out and I look cute, and after a while of exercise I look even cuter. I have really fallen in love with printed work out leggings and shorts lately! Some of my favorites are these Albion Fit floral and stripes leggings and these RBX Active camo leggings. I’m not going to lie, I love them all so much I sometimes wear them as regular leggings when I’m not at the gym. Remember, this is a no judgement zone! Lol!

You can get a 25% discount on the RBX pants now until 7/31/15 with code Active25. I’m seriously considering getting these ones with the discount code!:)

I Love These Shorts

Pink and black and white

I love these shorts! I have them in every color…well, not every color…but quite a few! Old Navy for the win! I love when you find a good pair of shorts that just fits well. I always make sure to get a few pairs of something when I decide I really like it:) If you haven’t tried Old Navy’s shorts lately, you should give them a shot. They aren’t too short and they are super comfortable. I just can’t do the short shorts at my age. I know I’m not old, but I just don’t feel appropriate. Lol…I do love the confidence that loosing a little weight and gaining some leg muscles has given me. I used to hate shorts, but have slowly but surely gotten more comfortable in them:)

This week couldn’t have gone by any slower. I don’t know why, I was so busy at work but the days just dragged on. I cannot wait until the weekend so that I can relax and get some work done around the yard. I hope you all are having a better week than I am…

Neon Pink Maxi Dress

Hot pink maxi dress with statement necklace

I am having vacation withdrawals! Wes and I were in Michigan this past weekend having fun on the lake, celebrating my sister’s wedding, and visiting with family. Going up north to the lake is something I look forward to every year, and it always goes by MUCH too quickly. I’ll be sure to post photos a little later on in the week since Wes and I were the official wedding photographers and all:) It was a great weekend and I will be in a post-vacation depression for the next week or so:( Neon pink maxi dress Neon pink dress Hot pink maxi dress Hot pink chiffon maxi dress Pink maxi with statment necklace Hill country photography Waterfall in the hill country Big bird in hill country

I found this dress at a flea market up by my parents house in the Dallas area. This cute little Texas Boutique had a whole bunch of dresses on sale and I got this one for only $10! It’s super fun for summer time because it’s so bright, but you could also throw on a black cardigan and maybe a little black Kendra Scott for a more toned down fall/winter look!

The photos were taken at Bull Creek. I took some here last year, but with all of this rain it looks drastically different down there now. So much more water! It’s a great place to go for a hike or for a swim in the areas with less rapids. Looks of awesome nature as well, as you can see by the cool bird photo:) Hope you are all having a wonderful week after the 4th of July. Let’s get this one over with and get to next weekend already! Haha!
