Easy Dinner | Butter Chicken

I haven’t made this in a long time.  Mainly because every time I'd thought to make this for a meal, I’d forgotten that I have to marinate the chicken overnight first.   This time, though, I decided that marinating the chicken for a few hours (instead of overnight) might work as well.  I marinated the chicken for four hours and let me tell you, it works just fine.


I love this recipe for how easy it is to make and for how very yummy it is. 

4 pcs boneless chicken breasts, cubed
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cardamom
1 bunch chopped coriander
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 whole onion, diced
1/4 cups butter
1 can (14.5 oz can) tomato sauce
1 can (14.5 oz can) diced tomatoes
1 pint whipping cream
1 bunch chopped coriander
2 cups rice

1) Combine first 8 ingredients and marinate overnight (preferably, but even 4 hours will do).
2) Saute the onion in the butter until soft.
3) Add marinated chicken and cook for around 10 minutes. Pour in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.
4) Cook for 30 minutes on medium-low heat with lid on.
5) Add the whipping cream and coriander just before serving over rice.

Do give this a try; you won’t regret it, I promise!
