Butter Chicken

Recipe by JustJanS

I got this off the internet a few years ago. It is now my youngest son(a chef in Melbourne)'s requested dish when he's at home. So I guess to him it's major comfort food!

We loved this chicken. The flavors all together were beautiful, but not too rich. I liked the yogurt instead of sour cream. It was very easy to put together, and it made a lovely meal. I will be using this one again.
