TASTY BUTTER CHICKEN (SERVES: 6)
This recipe requires you to marinade the chicken overnight. So what are you waiting for?
INGREDIENTS: For the chicken marinade:
1 kg chicken breasts, cubed 3 tablespoons mild curry powder 1 tablespoon ginger and garlic paste 250 ml plain yoghurt 1 tablespoon coconut oil
