Sunday Cooking : Butter Chicken



This is going to be one of our favorite dinner dishes: Butter Chicken (recipe from Tasty Kitchen). I just made a bit of modification to the recipe to suit our family’s needs. I omitted the cayenne pepper, added a dash of paprika, no cardamom (because I couldn’t find any!), and I used fresh coriander to marinate instead of powder coriander. I also added button mushrooms to the mix and I added turmeric to make the basmati rice yellow.

This was Josh’s portion… and he cleaned his plate! Zoë, too. Chris had a second helping.DSC05935


I absolutely loved it and I’ll definitely be making this again. I seem to love creamy chicken dishes –see our other favorite chicken dish here. You can tell I tend to try different variations of things that I love. In this case, it seems like I just varied the colors of the chicken, but I swear the creamy basil chicken tastes very different from this butter chicken recipe.

Go on! Try one –or both! –of these recipes. I promise, you will not regret it.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

That looks and sounds so good I might actually try to make it. My youngest is here with me and just said, yeah make that!

We have an amazing IndoCanadian community close by and the Buter Chicken they make is to die for!

I'm sayin'. I saw this on Pioneer Woman and had to try it. Good golly Miss Molly I that I'd died and gone to Heaven.

You have a marvelously blessed week sweetie!
