Chicken in Indian Butter Sauce

Tonight I made Butter Chicken.

Indian Butter Chicken is very easy to make and very satisfying.

The sauce going for a swirl with cream.

Served on rice I flavored with garam masala spices. Delish!

The recipe for the sauce makes three cups. For tonight, for the two of us, I used 1 1/2 cups of the sauce. The remainder went into the deep freeze for a later date. I suspect I can take it out of the freezer the night before/morning of, let it thaw and heat over a very low simmer before adding the chicken.

Where did you buy garam masala? Did you get it whole or already in a powder?

This looks so good; I want to try it next week!

I love butter chicken but have never made it at home. You've inspired me to give it a try.

Very easy! As I mentioned in the original post, if you don't have a blender or food processor, make it rustic by finely chopping the veg...I'm sure it will be just as delicious.
