Our version of Butter Chicken is perfectly balanced with aromatic spices, is creamy, rich and a perfect comfort meal.
Its not too spicy so the whole family can enjoy, if you like that extra heat just top with some finely sliced Chilli to serve.
You can mix it up and use any cut of chicken you like, slowly simmering it away in the sauce makes for lovely tender and marinated Chicken.
