Not-So Butter Chicken

We’ve had a pretty rough fall already. The girls have been taking turns being sick, and Ali and I can’t coordinate our schedules to do something as simple as take a trip to the pumpkin patch. This bad luck carried over to our monthly dinner date as well. I ended up making this recipe twice because the first dinner was sabotaged by sickness. But, what this tells you is that it was worth eating twice in the span of a month!

I found this recipe for butter chicken at TasteBook.com and it looked like a winner to me. It is quite flavorful and difficult to resist seconds, but it just doesn’t taste like butter chicken — hence the “Not-So Butter Chicken” title.

Note: I hate touching raw meat, so I cheat a little by getting already cooked and cut chicken but still marinate it overnight. Also, naan goes really nicely with this dish. You can pick some up in your grocer’s bakery.
