We enjoyed this dish very much; however, it wasn't exactly like the butter chicken we are accustomed to. I think next time I would use pureed tomatoes vs. diced and less onions. I used Indian chili powder which is extremely hot so I definitely scaled it back to suit our tastes. While it would up the calories, etc., I think I would also add a bit more cream as well. I will definitely try this dish again! Made for ZWT-8-India.
I tried this recipe last night. It was so easy and so tasty! What a great version of one of my favorite Indian dishes. I did not change anything except adding an extra hot chili pepper. The sauce was just a bit thick but the flavor was fantastic. Definitely a keeper! I just love the recipes provided by Janet & Greta. I miss the TV show so much!
A very tasty dish. I measured out most of the ingredients in the morning, so that it was quick to put together. I also added some cubed potatoes to lighten up the protein load in this dish, reducing the amount of the chicken. Perhaps a little more spice next time.
This was a good dish to cook for a weeknight dinner. Not quite butter chicken for me, but a good enjoyable dinner with Indian spices. I used ground chilli powder (not Mexican chili blend) which is very hot....so just used 1/2 the amount stated. Photo also to be posted
This was lovely! I used chicken breasts from the freezer, cooking them quickly with tandoori paste and garlic. I then blended my sauce before adding chicken to get a beautiful smooth consistency. I also added slightly more cream as it was a little spicy for my 4 year old. Such a lovely, fast and healthy version of this dish ?
I really enjoyed this! So did NOT want to just reheat last night's rotisserie chicken. Super easy. Was working on a late dinner while juggling a cranky infant, a preschooler and a 3rd grader with homework... got it done and on the table without much trouble! That is a 5-star recipe in my book. <br/>Unfortunately, my ginger was bad so I threw in about 1/2 tsp of ground ginger. Also cut back on the chili powder as a couple of other reviewers suggested. I might put in the full amount next time. Also felt it needed extra salt. Finally, I only had heavy whipping cream so that's what I used. Not a healthy dinner tonight but it was good. And different! Thanks!
This is delicious and feels so much lighter than what you get at the restaurant. Thank you for posting!
I am rating this a five without any prior experience with butter chicken, so I really can't compare. I just know that I loved the flavors and textures. This was so good served over the basmati rice. The butter chicken was flavorful and almost creamy. Yum yum. Made for ZWT8 India
We loved this chicken dish. The sauce was rich and flavorful. We've never eaten and Indian dish made with rotisserie chicken before, but what could be easier, and why add extra calories if you already have a great tasting dish? I used crushed tomatoes after reading a few of the reviews, and was very pleased with the consistency of the sauce. Thanks for sharing a very good recipe.
This dish is truly excellent! I pureed the diced tomatoes slightly before adding and added a bit more salt and pepper to taste plus a tiny sprinkle of cayenne pepper for extra spice. Just wonderful. Served with naan and basmati rice for a great Indian meal. Made for ZWT 8.
