Butter Chicken Curry is a popular Indian curry recipe that kids love, it's a mild & delicious chicken curry Easy Butter Chicken Curry Recipe for Kids. Published January 19, 2014 8 comments >> . It's a creamy and perfectly spiced Indian curry recipe with Butter Chicken is one of the recipes most frequently requested of me. It's one I make fairly often, so I.. I just have to say that I absolutely love this recipe….so thank you for that. I’ve been making this every once in a while for my fam and they love it too! The restaurants aren’t cutting it for me! Also to anyone who is concerned about the cream separating….if you use whipping cream- 35%, that will most certainly not happen. I cooked my sauce and my par cooked chicken pieces(bone in) over low heat after everything was combined for 30 minutes and it was perfect. The chicken was tender and the sauce was beautifully thickened. Mine doesn’t turn a vibrant red, but I don’t care- my mouth loves it!I tried this variation of the recipe and enjoyed it quite a bit. I will share a little secret. Add 1-2 tablespoons of ketchup 🙂 And you must must add 1 tablespoon of fenugreek leaves (Kesoori Methi) at the very end just before the garnish.You will be amazed with the transformation to Restaurant quality. Cheers. Happy cooking!! Good, Quick, Clean Recipe. Love It!
Now I am even more upset, hahaha because how do you stop tasting???? It is so delicious I had to drag myself away from the kitchen to come and tell you! I LOVE IT! I am in South Africa (with a president… which is why I follow yours to make me feel better..) so I used our Wimpy tomato sauce 1 cup plus 1/4 cup and I used 1 cup cream and 1 cup coconut cream and omg it is delicious! Thank you and thank you fate that I decided to read the recipe hahaha.Hi Michael! I’m not sure what tomato passata is… I used canned tomato sauce — not just puréed tomatoes.Accidentally used 2 cups of heavy cream (didn’t read the notes about using half water). Whoops! So delicious but will make sure to do half water next timeThanks, Brittany! I haven’t made it using 100% milk — but I think if you used a fatty enough milk (like whole milk) it could work. I have made it using 1/2 cream and 1/2 water — so just diluted cream. That worked great for me! Two cups of cream is a lot, I know! Let me know how it goes if you do try with all milk!
That’s a great idea! I’ll have to try that — since we ALWAYS have coconut milk on hand (and it’s waaaay cheaper than cream over here!). Any Indian dishes you’ve made that you recommend I try? I’m not sure what to try next!! I have restaurant-style aloo gobi coming up soon (pretty similar to this butter chicken sauce, actually), but I’m honestly just not familiar enough with a big variety of Indian dishes. I NEED MORE!Whole family loves it. Which is no small challenge. Family of 6 – 4 kids from 14-22. I used canned coconut milk instead of cream to avoid dairy. It was spectacular! Not bland at all (as mentioned in a previous post), but then again, I don’t follow recipes exact. I season to my preference.
Made this meal tonight and I will say that it was some of the best butter chicken I have tasted! Mary thanks so much for the recipe and keep them coming!, Stanley! When you gotta have butter chicken, you GOTTA HAVE BUTTER CHICKEN!! xoHad some brining chicken and decided to make this 20 minutes before bed. Let is sit overnight after being heated and warmed when we were ready for dinner. The 1 year old ate the meat and the 4 year old inhaled the meat and sauce with his brussel sprouts. It was a really nice flavour especially after the first 18 hours or so. Cannot wait to have it again with some roti!
Greetings from Australia, came across this recipe and gathered all the ingredients easily except that I used a Tasmanian Butter instead. The chicken cooked to perfection and the creamy Ritz crackers worked to perfection with the butter. This worked so well I was picking at the crumbs in the pan until it was almost picked clean. The Chicken stayed moist and tender which is something I like as I often use a Sous Vide water bath machine for cooking chicken and the overall flavor was fantastic. another 10/10 for this recipe one meal I will be certain to have again.… Read more »I tried this out to surprise my husband who’s an avid butter chicken lover. Let me just say he came back home with a bunch of chicken breast and puppy eyes look asking that i make a huge batch and freeze em so he can eat every day!! I followed the recipe and i uou were right,i totally couldn’t stop licking and tasting!! I dont know if it freezes well though, what do you think? Thanks so much for this recipeI’m unsure how to answer this, Lisa … the ground cumin is an essential piece of the flavor profile! You can leave it out if you don’t like cumin, but the end flavor will be different. Butter Chicken or Murg Makhani (Hindi: मुर्ग़ मक्खनी) (pronounced [mʊrg ˈmək.kʰə.niː]) is a dish, originating in the Indian subcontinent, of chicken in a mildly spiced tomato sauce.

We have literally just finished devouring this delicious dish that was oh so easy to make!! I’ve been thinking about making Indian food for a while now, but I could never find the right spices at the right time. Yesterday I bought everything I needed and today I made this as a special birthday lunch for my boyfriend. I know what you mean when you say this recipe changed your life!One of my go-to side dishes for chicken like so is steamed or roasted asparagus or broccoli, then I also like to serve it with orzo. Cauliflower rice would also be a good healthier alternative to the orzo. I love how that bit of extra sauce goes with the orzo, perfect match. Plus orzo is so lazy and easy.Hi Krystle! That happens, depending on the tomatoes/spices you use! Hopefully it still tasted great 🙂Not as creamy as I’d like, but making it tonight for coworkers tomorrow as a surprise Christmas Eve treat! We’re doing a pot luck in my department, and I know this won’t be topped! Thanks so much for the deliciousness!!!

This recipe looks great and I can’t wait to try it! I would love to make it this week but I was wondering if I could substitute ginger (powder) for the fresh ginger.

I can’t believe how quick and easy this was to whip up. AND it actually tastes really close to what I’ve eaten in authentic Indian restaurants.

I’ve made it with a variety of cream/water combinations, and it’s definitely best with more cream! Enjoy! xoI’ve always found that boneless skinless thighs taste better and cook much better than breast meat – they rarely dry out or overcook. I use them in place of breast meat always.
Haha yaaay! So glad to hear you both liked it, Whitney! This is definitely a recipe I make with the goal of having leftovers… they’re so good! Thanks for much for the comment! xoxoAmen to Dishoom! That is home to one of the most amazing Indian food in the world. Loved their Bhel Puri and Black Dhal – and of course I died with their butter chicken! Gonna try this recipe very very soon!First you’ll pound the chicken breasts out until you’ve got fairly thin chicken cutlets. For a shortcut here you could buy thin cut chicken.
Hi Cait! I do this all the time! The only thing to be careful of is curdling. I add small amounts of the warm sauce to the (room temp) yogurt, then add it all back in once the temperature difference isn’t too great. It’s a delicious/healthy alternative!! Enjoy! xoHi Nicole!

Butter - a soft, pale yellow food made from cream that you put on bread and use in cooking; Vegetable oil - cooking oil made from plant Oh my gosh!! Thank you so much!! After living in The UAE for a year and then coming back to the states I really missed my Indian “fast food.” This Butter Chicken was amazing! It really was everything that I had hoped it would be! The recipe was well written and super easy to follow! Now I just need to work on my naan : )I made this last night for dinner(my 1st time making Indian food). My husband is not a big Indian fan, but loved it!!! I can’t wait to finish the leftovers to make it again!!! This was amazing!!!!! I normally stay away from cooking Indian as the mile long list of steps and ingredients completely intimidates me. This however, was pretty simple and tastes just as good as when I order this dish at my local Indian restaurant. As I couldn´t find any cayenne pepper I omitted it (but will try and add it next time) and as I could only get extra spicy chili powder I only added 0.5 a tsp. Quick Indian butter chicken recipe.

I think the spices make a whole lot of difference so I´ll definitely be experimenting with the combo in the future.It was the easiest butter chick recipe ever, my old recipe has 21 ingredients and takes twice as long. Loved the taste of yours it was quick and just as tasty. Love it 10/10P.S. I tried the naan recipe as well and that was great. The puffy naan may be more in the South, but this flat naan is what they had in the North where I was. Thanks for that recipe as well.I thought “life changing” really did sound a bit dramatic! Nonetheless, I tried this recipe because it did sound pretty damn good, and life changing is an understatement! So amazingly good! I’m vegetarian, so I substituted the chicken with paneer and it might be the best dinner I’ve ever made! Piece of cake to make too. Thanks so much for sharing!oooh that sounds like a wonderful take on it, Mary Lynn!! I’ll have to try that some night I have some more time!! xo
Hi Tanya! I think you could absolutely take those two out and still have a delicious meal! Give it a go, and let me know how it is! xoxoI want to do this in the slow cooker, would it basically be the same as the “healthier” version but add cream at the end instead of yogurt?
I saw this recipe last night and I made it today!!! It’s so easy to make, I made one before but this one is wayyyyy better (I never knew I have to put cream lol).. I’m glad found your recipe.

Hi Betty! I’m no rice expert, so you may want to google rice recommendations — but I do know what I do: rinse my rice thoroughly, and make sure not to use too much water (otherwise it will get gummy). I let it sit for 5-10 minutes after it’s done cooking (with the lid on), then fluff it with a rice paddle. Good luck! xoI’m so glad you posted this recipe. One of my fav memories of my grandfather is walking to the “The Mogul” restaurant, every Sunday and ordering butter chicken and naan! I want to make this! And you’re right, you can eat butter chicken anytime of the year!
This was truly an awesome recipe. I love Indian food but eating can get costly. This was sooooo satisfying. Thank you!!! Butter chicken is reminiscent to chicken tikka masala but the difference is that while Tikka Masala is a bit more complex and this tastes more buttery with a delicious tomato based Indian gravy I made this tonight and it was great. Friends stopped by unexpectedly with some wine and decided to stay and try this new recipe because it smelled wonderful- they loved it! They said that I am a good cook and I always say that I am not a good cook, but I KNOW HOW TO SPOT A GREAT RECIPE. This is a great base recipe and the sauce would be great to use with crisp fried potatoes for vegetarian or even paneer, and maybe fried tofu. Overall, very pleased and so much easier than the 3++ hours to make good tika masala( love tika masala for the flavor, but have a house full of dudes who need food fast). Easy and manageable ingredient list and steps. Bought Trader Joe’s garlic Naan and made it even easier. It’s going in my recipe rotation.
Oh yay!! This is what I love to hear, Stephan! I’m so glad you’re enjoying it as much as I am 🙂 xoSO GOOD! I had a little bit of trouble getting my chicken to the right temperature and I think some parts might have dried out. But it tastes AMAZING, I love this and will make it again.

I love halloumi, so will definitely be trying this. Thanks, Sarah! xo
This actually tastes like store bought butter chicken finally! No more sauce in a jar. Made it in NZ so equivalent would be tomato pasteHi Megan! It’ll still taste good, but won’t be quite the same. Definitely give it a try, but get cumin next time!! xo Along with Chicken Tikka Masala, Butter Chicken is without a doubt one of the most well known Indian dishes around the While I love butter chicken, I have a few problems with many restaurant versions Hi there, In my personal opinion, butter chicken and tika masala are completely different in taste. However, unlike you, someone who may be well-versed in what it contains; I am not sure of the ingredients. Now, I’m not criticizing, but, I am a tad OCD when it comes to grammar, and even though reading through your post, I found myself white-knuckling my fists; I truly appreciate your style of writing! Great job! If I may make a suggestion as an avid Indian food connoisseur, please visit an authentic Indian cuisine restaurant near your area. Those two dishes are totally and completely different in texture and (more importantly) taste. Other than that, I love butter chicken and will be trying this recipe soon!I think the pictures make it look more red than it really was! I was surprised about that too. Also, the fact that I used cream combined with water may play into it here. I’m glad you liked it, though!!
This recipe was very helpful, however I substituted the tomato sauce with chopped tomato. I would 10/10 recommend.Great Recipe Mary! Thanks a bunch! Now I don’t have to order from my local indian food resturant and spend alot of $$.Oh no! I wonder if that’s because of the half n half, vs. cream… I’m not an expert on the science here, but I think it you use real cream it’s less likely to curdle, or perhaps try heating the dairy a bit first! Hopefully it tasted alright!! xoNeither — it is just CREAM. Like, whipping cream. Or half&half, if you want something a little lighter.

Followed the spice mix and ratios, but substituted potatoes, carrots and turnip to make it vegetarian. I used half coconut cream and half coconut milk instead of the cream asked. Super tasty and will be making again!
I always use a can of diced tomatoes. Instead of cream, I use a can of “lite” coconut milk. In place of some of the butter, I use coconut oil. I put the sauce in the vitamix to make it super smooth. Easy and sooo delicious. Had never heard of the spice garam masala . Found it at the grocery store and it was quite expensive. I was a little worried that it might be a waste if I didn’t like it. Worth every penny! Definitely will be making this again. Husband raved about it! Thanks, Mary, for sharing!
Remove from fridge and set on the counter for 20 minutes. Reheat in a 350F preheated oven. If the casserole looks dry, you can add liquid to it in increments of a few tablespoons at a time, until the desired consistency is reached. So easy to make and so flavorful! It was a hit in my family and I can’t wait to eat the leftovers today!I just wanted to add that for a healthier option, I swap out the heavy cream for a can of organic light coconut cream. I also substitute butter for ghee (a clarified butter) to brown off my chicken and spices. Ghee is traditionally used in Indian cooking because it has a high smoke point and provides a crisp saute. However it also has more fat and cholesterol than alternatives such as vegetable oil. I do finish this dish with butter, as suggested.Chicken jalfrezi is a great one to try…its Chicken and green/red peppers with onions and tomatoes and spices. Sooo good with naan.

Could I use coconut milk as a sub for some of the cream? I have some in my fridge I’m hoping to use. Thanks! Can’t wait to try this.Thanks, Cari!! I usually make a double batch of this so I have leftovers — they’re so good the next day!! xoJust finished eating this. And, let me just back up Mary by saying this was straight up one of the best dishes I’ve made in a LONG time. Absolutely delicious! Thank you, Mary!Had a huge pack of boneless chicken breasts so we marinated and grilled them for multiple meals…made butter chicken with 3 of them and it was really good liked the Smokey taste it added to your yummy sauce recipe!! Great way to use leftover chicken!Unique dish. Didn’t seem to really have as much flavor as I thought it would as I was finishing it. Served it to my wife first, she said it’s good, three or four bites later, she said it is fantastic! Same for me, the more you eat, the better it gets. This is now one of my favorites. Naans with yeast, dipped in the sauce…wow
Hi! Yes, absolutely, but because legs will need less cooking time, I’d advise to use this recipe: https://diethood.com/one-pot-chicken-rice-artichokes/ You can use the same seasonings as I did in this recipe, but for the rice to liquid ratio, and cooking time, I’d go with following the other recipe. I hope that helps. 🙂I just made this tonight. I was a little short on cream so had to substitute a half cup of yogurt, and in addition didn’t have any garam masala so had to use Patak’s curry paste for that, but it still came out great. Thanks for the recipe! Overworld: Log, Sand, Flint, Bone. Nether: Soul sand, Nether Quartz. Colored chickens you craft with dye and an egg. To craft place an egg in the middle of the crafting table and place 8 dye pieces in a square around the egg Second time I grinded the onions to make a paste. Also used 1 cup of cream and 1 cup of water to bring out more of the tomatoe sauce flavor. Made naan bread and both butter chicken recipes- preferred the regular recipe made with light cream. Delicious! New family favourites 🙂
If I used creamed coconut to substitute the 2 cups cream, would I also need 2 cups of the creamed coconut? Thanks 🙂Hi Sophie — It depends on where you live! You might look through the comments for more people from your area — people have answered with what “tomato sauce” is called where they live. One of these days I’m going to get around to consolidating a list and putting it in the recipe… I just haven’t gotten there yet! Thanks! xoI’m so glad you liked the chicken, Kat! It might be time for me to do more testing on the yeastless naan — I developed that recipe when I was living in Asia and didn’t have measuring cups, so it could be WAY off. Have you tried the regular naan recipe? It’s more involved, but totally worth it!!Great recipe! I changed it a bit though. I used cream cheese and marinara sauce instead. No need for salt. It’s so dirty…in a good way. Bread was needed for sure.

Loved the recipe! So easy! Added a touch more cayenne…. Perfect blend of spice & sweet; thank you!Used haloumi instead of chicken for my vegetarian sister – still delicious and my dad raved about it!Thank you for your recipe. It is freaking delicious! My husband can’t get enough of this butter chicken 🙂 I modify the recipe for our slow cooker though. I make the sauce, and then cover raw chicken on high for ~3 hrs. I usually throw in chick peas too. We have been making this once a week! Thanks!!
Ooooooooh yes! Will definitely try this out. And yes to Indian year round! There’s a buffet that we go to all the time at work. Also I discovered Tasty Bite at Target. I’ve gotten the Channa Masala for work.So good! I did wait to add the cream until the very last minute (and I only used 1 cup) but the chicken was tender and the sauce was amazing. Will certainly make this again.Tried it and it was great for a 40 min prep time. I too agree that I will blend it next time to get a smoother thicker sauce. I also added a pinch of paprika and will use a tad less cream next time. All in all it was a great dish and will be a regular staple in my lineupI read the recipe incorrectly the first time I made it. I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. It came out great but the color wasn’t as rich looking and the sauce was a little thinner, but still amazing! I made homemade pita bread to serve next to it- YUM!This was absolutely delicious! I didn’t have any cream on hand so I used 1 cup of coconut milk and 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt and it was fantastic! Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. 😊
In bringing out this honey butter chicken recipe, we experienced a spring in our steps. The incredible aroma of melted honey and butter alone are enough to lift three fingers in salute. Get ready and hop.. Just put it all together without cooking the chicken and leave cream out until ten mins before serving. Thats what i did. Cooked wonderfullyIndian food is a bit expensive for us, especially how much we like to eat and this tasted spot on to our fav Indian spot down the street.Hi Corsie! There is salt and pepper listed, and I’ve only instructed to add both to taste. I do find it needs some salt! Enjoy!
Thanks for the great recipe. Super easy. Mines not as orange as your pictures though. Did you add paprika or turmeric to get it more orange? Mine just kind of came out pinkish.Great recipe. Surprisingly easy to prepare. Had the right amount of heat. We had it with fried brussel sprouts which went well with this dish and was also a big hit (especially when that particular veg is not an easy sell).
Always a First For Everything! And coming from Hawaii this comes as a rare ordeal! But I’m always up for something New and Different and Ever So Delicious! Thankyou for your post! Fabulous Dish! I almost feel like Andrew Zimmermon but doing all the work! Haha…Mahalo Timra…(Jazz)Yum. I totally made this vegetarian with chick peas, black lentils, cauliflower, peas, and zuccini. I used some Mexican crema I had on hand too. It was delicious and passed the kid test too minus the cayenne. Will definitely make this again.Hi, Lovely reciepe, thankyou. I’m Australian & for the tomato suce I used Passata and 1/2 tablespoon of tomatoe paste. Our measurements are different too. I have added Australian conversions is its helpfull for anyone:-) 2LBs of chicken = 900gm chicken ( I used 1 kg). 1 American cup = 225ml. 1 American Tablesoon = 15 ml ( Australian Tablespoons are 20ml). Teaspoons are about the same.
I read some comments and in my opinion follow the recipe. Just like the mouse says in. Ratatouille. Don’t use milk or water!The actual butter chicken is always orange, buttery and slightly sweet. if a red butter chicken is served then it surely has added color..Does not taste like true butter chicken. Too spicy if making for a family with kids. Would use chicken thighs instead. Add heavy cream at the end and the water while cooking.Hi Jess! This is not my area of expertise… but I’d be comfortable eating this for 3-ish days. If you have too much, I’d freeze some of it!! Enjoy! xoI love Indian food and have eaten a variety of yummy butter chicken recipes over the years. This one was not up to snuff and I was BUMMED out. In general, the flavor was pretty uninteresting and texture left something to be desired. The chicken didn’t end up very tender and my girlfriend and I ended up having to toss the lot- what a disappointment. Will not make again or recommend to a friend.
Hi! This sounds like such a delicious recipe and I will most likely be making this for dinner tonight. Is this in any way spicy? Some of my family cannot stand any spice at all! If it is what ingredients should I take out to make it mild? Thanks!! Butter chicken isn't the most ancient Indian export—it was invented in a restaurant in Delhi in the 1950s—but it is certainly one of the most delicious Nothing beats this one pot, comforting and easy chicken thigh recipe when it comes to convenience and comfort. It’s how we do dinners that include the main entree and its side dish, all in just one pan. So easy, yet packed with so much flavor and textures.According to the tiny bit of research I did, butter chicken and chicken tikka masala are NOT the same thing. And, in all honestly, this recipe may be more in line with chicken tikka masala for the simple reason that this chicken does not have bones. Butter chicken originated from using leftover dry tandoori chicken and giving it moisture with a creamy spiced tomato sauce — plus some butter, and we have butter chicken. According to Epicurious, chicken tikka masala was born when restaurants saw butter chicken’s popularity, and started cooking boneless chicken specifically for the tikka masala. Have I confused you yet? One thing I have found, is that information everywhere is a bit different. Some say there are deeper differences than that (starting with, and not limited to, the inclusion of butter/ghee in butter chicken), but others call them virtually the same thing. EITHER WAY: I LOVE IT. Butter & Soy Sauce - Butter Shoyu Chicken. If you have never combined these two ingredients together, you will be pleasantly surprised how delicious these two flavors bring to a dish I’m 4 years after the fact here but would you add the same amount (2c) of yogurt? I can’t “do” cream and we aren’t fans of coconut so the yogurt would be a perfect swap.
