    This is a family favorite of ours. A not spicy Indian dish that calls for a full stick of butter. Any recipe that asks for a stick of butter has to be great!

  • 1 stick of butter, 8 tbsp (you can substitute coconut oil easily)
  • 1 large onion, sliced thinly
  • 2″ knob of ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp ground coriander

  • 3 cardamom pods
  • 1/4 tsp whole peppercorns

  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 cups cooked chopped chicken (you can use about 8 chicken pieces as well)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3/4 cup cream (sour cream works great)
  • 1 tsp sea salt (or to taste)
  • Recipe Instructions:
