An easy and delicious dish, it's so fast to make! An authentic Indian recipe, but without the heat! Feel free to spice it up with chili.

Although it's called "Butter Chicken" don't let it confuse you, it has no butter in the ingredients.
Made it with monkfish. I changed the recipe a bit: added about 5 big garlic cloves along with the onion, 1 tablespoon butter along with the oil, didn't use cream, just the yogurt and 3 big cut up tomatoes instead of the condensed tomato. Next time I might add a bit of white wine...

Had this last night increased chicken to 700 grams (feeding 5) but could have fed 6 (had left overs for lunch today). Added a chilli and as garlic wasn't quantified added 2 cloves crushed. Used cream as I had run out of yoghurt. Would add an extra chilli next time. Had rice steam veg and sauteed spinach recipe #90853. Thanks for a quick simple dish.
