"This is a version of the popular 'Butter Chicken' recipe found in most Indian restaurants. I adapted it from a delicious sauce recipe in one of my cookbooks that always drives me wild, and streamlined it so it doesn't take half as long to make. Basically, it's chicken cooked in a spicy tomato cream sauce. Serve with naan and basmati rice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed
green cardamom pods
cloves, lightly pounded
whole black peppercorns
1 (1/2 inch) piece
1 (15 ounce) can
1 1/4 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
dried fenugreek leaves
Faster version of Butter Chicken. One could use about 2 ts of Garam Masala as well, instead of the cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon to make it less work. I used cream, but next time I will use Greek style Yogurt for a creamier texture. Did not have Serrano peppers so used hot Sriracha paste and also used Ghee instead of regular butter. I simmered this for about 30 minutes. Also sauted half an onion. (A note about the ingredients: calls for fenugreek 'leaves' but the directions refer to fenugreek 'seeds'?? I used seeds but did grind them a bit) Will make again.
Takes a bit of time to make but once you put it on the plate it will all be worth it. The family loved it!
