Butter Chicken

I never realized just how mouthwatering and buttery “melt in your mouth” this recipe was! Throughout my years of creating new recipes, I’ve been asked by many people whether I had a spice mix for this recipe. I always brushed it off with “Well.., I’m focused on creating healthy dishes, so I haven’t really cooked it at home”, all the while thinking (on the inside).. heavens forbid.. the name Butter Chicken just makes my arteries clog!  Then the dreaded pandemic hit!!! What’s a person to do during a pandemic while sitting at home? For me, it was about trying new dishes! So I followed my heart.. which apparently is in my tummy as it has me heading to my fridge a LOT.  On a whim, while eyeing recipes for chicken late on a Saturday night, yes, that is what I really do to relax & eat with my eyes, followed by a quick trip to the fridge and a late night snack. Mmmm.. love those late night 1 am snacks. Yes, don’t deny it, you do it too, well.. the late night snacks at least, maybe not necessarily “googling” eye catching yummy food photos. So.. anyways, back to my butter chicken. My late night musings led me to creating this heavenly mouthwatering Butter Chicken dish! Usually, it takes me about 3-4 months to create this recipe, apparently my inner intuition a.k.a my tummy must have been really hungry too as this creation only took me about a month or so… well, that and the pandemic. I have to say it, it was an instant hit at home. 

 
Butter Chicken Dish

 

My family was torn between declaring Butter Chicken or our VERY popular spice mix – Chicken Tikka Masala as a favorite. That’s when I realized, this IS the time and place for DECADENCE that just melts in your mouth, so my sensible self can take a flying leap off of a short pier.  So, to all those people who asked for this dish, I wholeheartedly agree with you. Yes, this dish is certainly worth the 3 tablespoons of butter in it! In full disclosure, I did make it a tiny bit healthier than usual (yes, sigh! my sensible side intruding again) but it sure is YUMMY! It’s a new favorite not only our family, but also of many of our family friends who tried it out. After an evening of dining on this divinely decadent dish, my friend Dana's “entire family LOVED it as they happily got lost in a food coma “. Mmmmm.... just LOVE those lip smacking meals that leave you in a food coma.  
After all that positive feedback, I’m SURE you’ll ENJOY treating yourself to this rich creamy buttery chicken dish too!

A delicious addition

Thank you for adding butter chicken. We can't seem to get enough of Priya's spice blends. Looking forward to whatever is next!

Fabulous!

I had this sitting in the back of my pantry for a bit with the best intentions of making it, but always forgetting to pick a component up at the store. I am so sad that I waited so long to make it! It was fabulous!! We had it for dinner last night and I followed the video instructions to use my Instant Pot. So warm and comforting. I did not quite have a full cup of heavy cream, so I did 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup half and half with perfect results. Very easy and tasty! I will certainly be stocking up!

Thank you Alicia for your wonderful review. I'm thrilled that you enjoyed my Chicken Tikka Masala recipe. I love the substitution for the heavy cream with half and half. Great idea!
Thanks again! Cheers, Priya

Family Favorite!

I have two picky kids that can never agree on what they like to eat. We all love the Beef Keema! I am looking forward to trying other Anar flavors!

Cooking this recipe was very easy and I was able to cook in my Instant Pot based on the video posted on the website. The final product was very good!

This has turned into a family favorite and we eat it at least once a month. It makes a ton, so there’s always leftovers. This is a must try!
