Butter chicken recipes - 6 recipes

By Gitanjali Roche

Even though you wouldn't think so from the name, butter chicken is actually an authentic Indian dish. My butter chicken recipe took me a very long time to perfect, and in the end I owe it all to my husband. But after many trials and errors, butter chicken is my go-to dish, whether it's for a simple weeknight dinner or a fancy cocktail party. This classic Indian recipe is easy to make, full of flavor and yet not too spicy. For me, it's my ultimate comfort food. Butter chicken is made with leftover tandoori chicken that is then cooked in a creamy yogurt sauce, topped with fresh cilantro and served on top of rice. When eating butter chicken I like to overload on carbs, and go for rice and homemade flatbread. If you like your butter chicken very spicy, then make sure to serve it with extra yogurt on the side; the coolness of dairy helps put out the fire of spicy chilies
