Butter Chicken is one of my two preferred Indian dishes (although I must admit Tandoori Chicken is definitely my first choice). I’ve tried several recipes in the past, unsure of their origin or validity… needless to say, they didn’t meet my expectations. I even tried a jarred sauce from the international isle of the grocery store. Then a few weeks back, Samina posted a recipe for Butter Chicken on her blog, I book marked the recipe and decided I had to give it a go.

I had to make a few substitutions based off of what ingredients I had on hand. 1) In the marinade I used cayenne pepper in place of the red pepper powder. 2) The meat department didn’t have chicken thighs, so I used chicken breasts. 3) In place of the jalepeño, I used 1 Tbsp. chopped green chillies. 4) I didn’t have fresh cilantro to garnish my finished dish…
