30 Minute Butter Chicken

30 Minute Butter Chicken


1 brown onion, diced

80g salted butter

4 garlic cloves, crushed

3 tbsp Quick Butter Chicken Blend

140g tomato paste

2 tsp lemon juice

2 tins coconut cream (270ml each, 100% coconut content)

½ cup water (optional)

2 chicken breasts or 4 thighs, cut into large chunks

Vegetables (optional)

Coriander (as garnish)

Salt to taste


1. Heat a deep saucepan or pot over medium heat.

2. Add butter. Once melted, add diced onions and sauté until onions are translucent, for approximately 3-5 minutes.

3. Add garlic and spice, then stir regularly for 1 minute until the mix is fragrant.

4. Next, add tomato paste, and continue stirring the mixture regularly for a further minute.

5. Pour in the coconut cream and lemon juice, stir to combine, and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. You can adjust the consistency of the mixture to your desired liking by adding water if desired.

6. Once the mixture is simmering, add chicken pieces along with any hard vegetables such as carrots or pumpkin, if desired. Turn heat down to low, and return to a simmer.

7. Continue simmering all ingredients for 10-15 minutes if you are using chicken breasts, or 15-20 minutes if you are using chicken thighs and any hard vegetables. Add soft vegetables such as cauliflower florets in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.

To serve
