Balti Butter Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Top Review by Bergy

Very upbeat spicy, but not overbearing sauce on the chicken. The chicken comes out juicy and very flavorful. Would be great over rice or with noodles. Watch that you don't get heavy handed with the cloves or the garam masala. you need to keep the spices in balance. I'll try this recipe with pork too! Thanks Tory
