Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken)
|Murgh Makhani, more commonly known as Butter Chicken, is a delicious dish of grilled chicken simmered in a rich buttery tomato sauce that’s very popular during the holidays. We've cut down on the amount of butter and cream used in this dish to make it a bit healthier than what you'll find in most restaurants.|
Bake on middle rack of oven at 450°F on a greased broil pan or grill on BBQ. Cook for 15 minutes basting the chicken occasionally with the marinade (keep extra marinade). Turn pieces and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle Jaswant’s Kitchen Garam Masala and mango powder (or lemon juice) on all pieces. Brush with 1 tbsp oil and broil/grill for 3-4 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Cut into smaller pieces. Add any pan juices to the remaining marinade and cook on the stovetop until it thickens and add to the tomato sauce (below) for more flavour.
Butter Chicken Sauce
Heat sauce and combine with chicken pieces and the cooked marinade. Simmer for 5-6 minutes. Add ½ of the chopped cilantro. Add more salt and green chili to taste. Garnish with rest of the cilantro. Serve with basmati rice and naan.
