Butter Chicken


Like any other foodie, I eat just about everything. With that, I wanted to share a recipe that I am kinda crazy about. You can find copies of this recipe all over Pinterest, this recipe is one my mom and I have mastered over the years. Not to sound full of ourselves, but this is the BEST butter chicken we have ever had! Before getting started on this bad boy, my recommendation is to make sure you have all the spices the recipe asks for. They are spices that you wouldn't normally find in your pantry, so be prepared. Once you have that you are ready to start!

I hope you enjoy!
