Description

A staple in Indian restaurants around the globe, butter chicken is practically the brand ambassador of Indian curries. This version makes good on the name with tender, juicy chicken, a subtle blend of spices, and just the right amount of butter and cream. The color of your sauce may vary depending on the color of the tomatoes, paprika, and ground chilies you use. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Prerna Singh.
