Impress your family with this amazing butter chicken recipe
Hey Bubu squad,
So my husband has been talking about his famous butter chicken that has been requested at work every week since he started making it. Being do the foodie that I am, and also a bit jealous that I had not tried it, I requested he makes it this weekend. Thinking what could be the big woop about some butter chicken. I stand corrected, this is one of the best chicken recipes.. First of the spices and ingredients used in this recipe, maybe few but pack a punch of flavor! If your tired of the same ol chicken recipe give this one a try, you won't be disappointed! Its thick, creamy and smokey with flavor.
The Garam Marasal, heavy cream and Tumeric is what really make this dish something special. You can find the Garam Marsala in the "ethnic" section in your supermarket.
We used chicken thighs but if you won't a less fatty version you can use chicken breast.
Your basically going to add all the wet ingredients first, cook it down and then add the dry spices and let it simmer.
Don't be suprised when people start rushing to the kitchen when that aroma hits the air lol
- 1 cup plain or greek yogurt
- 1 tbsp Tumeric
- 2 tbsp. Garam Marsala
- 1 tsp. Cumin
- 6 tbsp Butter
- 1 Large Onion
- 1 Cinnamon Stick
- 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- Serve with Brown or Basmati Rice
Your gonna sweat your garlic and onion first. Add chicken and sear brown on both sides. Remove chicken, add butter and all of your liquid ingredients (heavy cream, yogurt and tomato paste). Add chicken and simmer until chicken is tender. Add all remaining spices and until chicken is cooked all the way and sauce is thick.
Enjoy squad and don't forget to share your pics!
