Saturday, November 10, 2007 Butter Chicken

The best butter chicken you'll ever bite into. Seriously. It's delish! Very easy to make too. I made a few modifications to suit our tastes which are noted below.

1 ounce butter
onion, chopped
1 clove
garlic, crushed
2 large
boneless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
chili powder
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
3/4 cup fresh cream
1 tablespoon
tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon
garam masala

Saute onion and garlic in butter. Slice chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Combine spices and salt and toss chicken pieces until well coated. Saute the chicken each side until golden brown.
Stir in the cream and tomato paste. Cover pan and simmer for about 10 minutes until cooked through. Sprinkle with garam masala.

MODIFICATIONS: I did 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. cayenne to make it a little more fiery than sweet. The spice was perfect for our liking. We also wanted some extra sauce to dip our naan bread in so I did 1 c. of cream and 1 1/4 tablespoons of tomato paste.
