Easy Butter Chicken – Gluten Free
When It comes to Indian cuisine, something like Butter Chicken doesn’t always come to mind at first, especially if you live in Trinidad. When we think of Indian food in Trinidad, the first thing that comes to mind is probably roti. But while in the Canada these last couple of months, I was able to enjoy a different type of Indian cuisine and out of all the dishes I tried, Butter Chicken was one of my favourites.
Butter Chicken is a delicious dish that is made by cooking down chicken in a creamy, mildly, spiced tomato sauce. It is usually served with Naan or for a Gluten Free Butter Chicken dish leave out the Naan and serve with Basmati Rice alone.
On my return to Trinidad, Butter Chicken became one of those dishes that I missed. Made with simple ingredients, I decided to give it a try and the result was delish! Everyone in the family enjoyed it and it’s now become a weeknight treat!
Some of the recipes out there, recipe lots of ingredients and many steps. Out of all the recipes that we found and tried, this Butter Chicken recipe from Wine & Glue was the easiest and the flavor was just what I remembered.
We made a few changes but the end result was still a yummy treat.
