Butter Chicken Recipe

Introduction and Overview about Butter Chicken

Butter chicken is a dish that has its origins in Punjab, India. This dish has very mild heat that allows the flavors of chicken and spices to shine through. It’s creamy, spicy, and absolutely amazing. The gravy is light yellow in color with a slight buttery aroma. It is cooked with butter, tomatoes, cashew nuts, cream, and a variety of spices. The chicken is slowly simmered in a thick gravy for a few hours until the meat is tender and the juices are properly absorbed by the gravy. Here is our butter chicken recipe.
