    Great recipe. Full of amazing flavors.

    Awesome! Full or flavor and super easy to make! Highly reccommend. Used sour cream instead of yogurt and it still worked perfectly. Only thing was it was a bit runny so just added a flour/water mixture to thicken and it did the trick.

    It taste delicious with roti or Naan bread. Instead of finely chopping the onion, I blended mine.

    If you followed the recipe and it doesn’t taste like butter chicken curry you know, add 1-2 tbsp of dry mustard

    Pretty good! Overall it didn’t turn out exactly like I imagined but that’s probably my fault! Will make again though!

    This turned out great! Be warned it makes a lot of sauce. Next time I’ll add another 1/2 pound of chicken

    had to adjust the spice and added more butter and made it with heavy cream instead of half and half.

    Quick and tasty recipe! Used a rotisserie chicken to prep a few meals so I used the breast meat for this recipe. The husband likes it as well so I'll be making this one again!
