This super easy and super yummy butter chicken makes for the perfect weekday meal.


1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
1 onion, diced
1 tsp ginger, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 Lenard’s chicken breasts, cut into chunks

1 400g can tomato puree
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cumin
½ cup Greek yoghurt
Salt and pepper, to taste


Place the yoghurt, garlic, ginger, garam masala, turmeric and paprika into a bowl. Stir in the chicken until evenly coated, and refrigerate for an hour.

In a saucepan, heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the chicken mixture and cook, stirring frequently, until the chicken begins to brown.

Add the tomato puree, cover and bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and let it simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally.

When the mixture has thickened, it’s ready to eat. Serve with hot rice and naan bread.

Tip from Lenard’s: Add a little chilli powder to give this recipe a spicy kick.
