Butter Chicken Curry

Butter chicken

When you cook this Butter Chicken Curry, the smells released are divine!

The spices are so wonderfully aromatic it tastes amazing too.

It's rich and full bodied in flavour and has a wonderful silkiness to it.

It is heavy on cream and butter - but is great for a low carb diet and it is perfect for a sugar free one too!

I make this with cauliflower rice, which offers a great amount of fibre, additional vitamins and nutrients - I have a recipe for cauliflower rice here

This is one of my favourite meals to cook at home for the family and for guests.

It's always a winner and unlike other curries, that can take a long time to cook, this really is simple and straight forward but massively delivers on taste!


2 lbs of chicken breast, cut in to chunks

salt and pepper

1 tsp of chili powder

1/2 tsp of ground turmeric

6 tbsp of butter, divided into 2 tbsp chunks

2 finely chopped onions

3 tsp of garam masala
