    This is a recipe that I've tweaked based on the many other recipes for Butter Chicken that I have tried. Since our year abroad, we have searched for a butter chicken recipe that comes close to the one we loved. This is not the same vibrant orange colour, but it is AMAZING!

      Very easy and lots of flavour in this Butter Chicken! Somehow I was expecting tomatoes in the recipe, but this recipe certainly needs nothing more, I loved the use of coconut milk, and we found this a delicious dinner, served over white rice. Thanks, wildgerbil, good recipe, enjoyed for Spring PAC 2013

      Loved this dish, and it was so easy! This is a mild curry, no fire due to the coconut milk, which helps DH to avoid reflux. The complexity of the spices helps to keep the blood sugar level. I will definitely make this again, I always have these ingredients on hand. Made for I Recommend tag game based on the recommendation of Karen Elizabeth.

      I made this for my husband who loved the butter chicken packet mix but that recipe has been modified and is not nice now. <br/>I loved this recipe and will definately be making it again. Hubby is not a spicy food fan so he didn't like it even though it is super mild. Highly recommend this recipe to everyone who likes yummy food. 10/10!
