Recipe of the Week - Butter Chicken

Permalink 01/27/11 15:38, by auntiedoris, Categories: Recipes , Tags: butter, chicken, clearpoint direct, crock pot

These days you can buy anything you need in the kitchen in a can, bottle or jar. But I find these premixed items always lack a little something. Personally I think it is tender loving care, this is what is required to take an ok dish to a great dish. So for those of us who like to stop and smell the roses, I bring you Butter Chicken. This recipe will show you the stuff from the bottle has nothing on good home cooked food.

I do warn you though, it does take some time, but I assure you, it is worth it.

Ingredients

· 1/4 pint plain yogurt
· 1 teaspoon ginger
· 1 teaspoon Salt
· 1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
· 3lb chicken, skinless, jointed
· Oil
· 2 oz butter
· 1 stick of cinnamon
· 6 cloves garlic
· 6 green cardamom
· 1/4 pint sour cream
· 1/4 teaspoon saffron, crushed
· 1/4 pint Cream
· Salt to taste
· 2 teaspoon ground Almonds
· 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
· 1 tablespoon water

Method

1. Mix yogurt, ginger, salt and red coloring and rub into chicken. Let it marinate overnight.

2. Place in an ovenproof dish and brush with oil. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 40-50 minutes. Save the liquid, if any.

3. In a saucepan, melt butter and fry cinnamon, cloves, cardamoms and bay leaf for 1 minute. 4) Add sour cream and chicken liquid. Add crushed saffron, and cream. Cover and simmer gently for 5-6 minutes.

4. Add chicken pieces and adjust seasoning. Add ground almonds. Dissolve cornstarch in water and add to the chicken.

5. Let it thicken. Cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat.
