Easy Butter Chicken and an update on my move!

I've arrived in Toronto!

The first thing I did was go to Ikea. While I didn't go specifically for the food, it was definitely a fantastic part of the experience! Instead of the classic Swedish Meatballs, I went for the Butter Chicken and man, was it ever good! Which got me thinking- could I make it at home?

The answer is yes!

I found a fantastic website called One Dish Kitchen...a website dedicated to single serving recipes! I found the recipe Butter Chicken for One and knew that I had to make it, but I made a few adaptations along the way. Keep reading for my recipe.

I began by marinating 2 cubed chicken breast in:

1/2 cup sour cream

2 tsp garham masala (I buy mine pre-made at Bulk Barn)

2 tsp tumeric

2 tsp cumin

Mix in bowl and marinate in fridge for as long as possible (approx: 30 min)

While the chicken is marinating:

Chop 1 small onion and cook in 1 tbsp butter, along with minced garlic (about 1 clove or 1 tsp)

Mix and add to onion and garlic:

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

Follow by adding:

1/2 cup No Sugar Added Ketchup

1/2 cup water**

Simmer in pan until mixture thickens and reduces slightly, about 10 minutes

Add marinated chicken breasts to pan and mix. Cook until chicken is no longer pink.

Serve 1/2 chicken mixture over basmati rice, cauliflower rice, or Konjac rice.

This recipe makes 2 servings of butter chicken.

** To make this recipe even more keto friendly

A) Add heavy cream or coconut milk instead of water

B) Use butter liberally
