Indian food is one of our favorites at our house. We got hooked a few years ago when our friends introduced us to a local restaurant who has the BEST Indian food. I love the melt in your mouth chicken that is drowning in a delicious and flavorful butter sauce. I couldn’t wait to try Patak’s®, Quick & Easy, Indian Food Butter Chicken with my family.

What is in butter chicken?

The spices may include garam masala, ginger, garlic, lemon or lime, pepper, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and chili. The chicken is usually cooked in a tandoor (traditional clay oven), but can also be grilled, roasted, or pan-fried. It is served in a mild curry sauce that includes butter. My family loved the sauce so much that they licked their plates clean. The flavor is incredible and it tastes straight out of a restaurant. The spices are perfect and it is wonderful served over basmati rice. We also love to eat it with naan.
