The Butter Chicken Experiment

After seeing a Paleo recipe for this Indian Restaurant favourite on My Heart Beets I wanted to see how it compared to a non-Paleo version. I have a couple of different recipes I’ve used in the past, all following a similar method:

  1. Marinade chicken pieces in yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, ginger and spices
  2. Roast the chicken (chicken tikka style)
  3. Make a sauce with tomatoes, garlic and ginger, more spices and an enthusiastic quantity of cream and butter whisked in.

I’m going to pick the best one of those recipes and do a side by side comparison – for scientific reasons, of course 😉
