This is an excellent recipe, however, the first time we tried it, we decided the chicken needed to be marinated first. The sauce was good, but the chicken (we used chicken breast) was a bit chewy. I use the marinade in the other Butter Chicken recipe by Vijar Bhaardwaj (15 minutes in the lemon juice, chili powder and salt and 3-4 hrs in the drained yogurt and spices marinade). The result is phenomenal!
In place of the full-fat half and half, I use Land of Lakes Non-fat Half and Half. It does not affect the taste. I've also used stewed tomatoes in place of the tomato puree.
A good side dish is Gobi Aloo (Indian-stype Cauliflower with Potatoes) by Shahzadi, also found on this website. Note: Use chopped tomato and coconut milk to make this recipe less dry.
I served both at a dinner party for 14 and they were a hit, with many requests for the recipes.
