Tandoori Butter Chicken

Tandoori Butter Chicken

Tandoori Butter Chicken is absolutely delicious! The chicken is marinated in a savoury mixture of yogurt and tandoori BBQ masala and then cooked in a creamy sauce of tomato puree, cream and butter. The result is a dish that combines spicy flavors with a smooth texture. Sprinkled with fresh coriander and served with fragrant basmati rice or warm naan bread, tandoori butter chicken is a real taste experience. 


What you need:

500g chicken breast fillets, cut into pieces
100g Greek yoghurt
2 tbsp Tandoori BBQ Masala
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp butter
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 piece of ginger (approx. 2 cm), grated
1 tin of tomato puree (400 ml)
1/2 cup cream
Garlic Sea Salt
Fresh coriander to garnish



To make the tandoori butter chicken, mix the yogurt, tandoori bbq masala and lemon juice. Add the chicken and let it marinate for at least 2 hours. Heat the butter in a large frying pan and fry the onions, garlic and ginger until soft. Add the marinated chicken and fry over a medium heat for about 10 minutes until cooked through. Stir in the tomato puree and cream and mix well. Leave to simmer on a low heat for about 15 minutes. Add Garlic Sea Salt and garnish with fresh coriander. Serve the dish with rice or naan bread.
