Easy Butter Chicken

This Easy Butter Chicken recipe is for beginners who are not confident in making their own Butter Chicken sauce, or for those people who want a quick fix of their creamy Indian cuisine.

In our family, we do have a thing called “Butter Chicken Thursday!” which means we buy Butter Chicken, Naan, and Samosas from our local Indian Takeaway. We love it as it tastes authentic, and we crave for it most of the time. We don’t do it every Thursday anymore, but from time to time, yes we do!

  • You can add more butter if you prefer.
  • Omit the fish sauce, if you don’t like the fishy taste.
  • Cut the chicken however you want, I just preferred it in small cubes (it’s easy to eat).
  •   You can use any store-bought Butter Chicken paste or sauce.
  • Serve with Naan or rice, or both.
