We had this Butter Chicken for dinner this evening. I halved the recipe for two diners, but otherwise followed the recipe. I found the flavor rather sweet, with the cinnamon being especially strong. This was somewhat of a surprise. While the dish was fine for one meal, it is a little too "different" for us. Just more proof that tastes vary. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
