Tip

I like to add Pumpkin and brocolli to my Butter Chicken as well. I add them at the same time as the chicken or if I have cooked left overs I add them to my plate and cover with Sauce.

  • Delicious, quick and easy!...

    Delicious, quick and easy!
    I used chicken breasts cut into large pieces which made prep so easy and there was no shredding. I used olive oil and did not put the second lot of oil in as per other comments. Will definitely make again.

  • Just Perfect...

    Just Perfect
    i used 40g of olive oil instead of the coconut oil, I didn’t have any coconut cream so I used coconut the milk instead. It worked very well. I also added a tablespoon of peanut butter only because I love it 😉 I had some frozen veg in the freezer which needed using up so I steamed it on the stove then because i was lazy I just used rice that was pre made in the cupboard. Thank you for this recipe it was a total hit.

    Very tasty. The whole family enjoyed it. I found it very oily though. The chicken and brocolli shredded which was perfect for my toddler, though maybe not for guests (I added brocolli with the chicken as suggested, it was lovely). I did cut up the thighs a bit, maybe I should have left them whole.

    This was very tasty the next day after the oil had settled out. Maybe next time try not adding the extra oil.

    Made this again without adding the extra oil. Still really good. Even my very fussy two year old had a second portion! Next time I might add 50g ghee when sauteeing and no more.

    Thanks for a great recipe!

    Lovely winter meal. I wasn't sure whether to cut the thighs, so I cut them into thirds. They did shred a bit so next time I'll leave them whole. I also added pumpkin and broccoli for a veggie fix. Will definitely make again. tmrc_emoticons.)

    This is the second time I have made this dish and it is so easy to make and so delicious.  I added the pumpkin which kind of just dissolved into the sauce making it a hidden vegie....even better!  Thanks for sharing.

    Great recipe.  Fussy husband loved it.  Wasn't sure how small to cut chicken if at all.  (I did cut it).

    Smells fabulous cooking. Will definitely add to my favourites. Oh, and I added the pumpkin and broccolini.  Pumpkin is a great add.

    Totally delicious. I was even missing a couple of spices, and it still turned out delicious. I used some pumpkin and beans in mine. Yummy. Definitely cooking again.
