1. These are meant to be eaten one a day, mixed in with your other daily food. Save 3 in your fridge and then store the rest in the freezer.
2. To take out of the freezer… take one out the night before and keep in the fridge to thaw. Reheat in a covered saute pan. Or eat cold 🙂 We aren’t fans of the microwave, but you can use it if you’re desperate.

Butter Chicken Ingredients:

4 lbs (1.8 kilos) of chicken thighs
1 yellow onion
6 garlic cloves
1 cup basmati rice (2 cups if you’re bulking)
1.5 cups water (3 cups in you’re bulking)
4 tbls coconut oil
1 small can (13.5 oz/400ml) coconut milk
1.5 tbls cumin
1.5 tbls chili powder
1.5 tbls garam masala
1 tbls tumeric
1 tbls ground ginger
1/2 tbls sea salt
2 sticks (16 tbls/220g) unsalted butter
1 cup tomato puree


MACROS for each container:

Calories: 702

While we are huge fans of high fat, low carb diet, if you would like to lower the fat in these macros, just take away 1 of the sticks of butter, which would make the macros this:

Calories: 610
Fat: 40
Carbohydrates: 27
Protein: 36
If you’re only eating one of these a day (which we recommend), you should be okay with the first set of macros
